Inscription.  This Catholic cemetery was created June 12, 1893. The first burial, that of Yrinia Buendia, took place within the month. Graves with earlier dates are transferred burials. A memorial altar and crucifixion scene were erected in 1960. A security fence was added when the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Angelo was established in 1961. Mausoleums and modern improvements arrived after 1985. Today, all affairs of these well-kept grounds are coordinated by a committee of local Catholic Church representatives. The heritage of area pioneers, veterans, church leaders, parishioners and their families is chronicled here with reverence and honor.
