Inscription.  

On January 17, 1897, German immigrants living in the Geronimo area met at Specht school to discuss the need for a community cemetery. The group formed a "Friedhof Gesellschaft", or cemetery association, and within a week purchased a five-acre plot of land from Ernst Puls and designated it the Lone Oak Cemetery. The following year the first burial, that of the one-week-old, unnamed son of Ernst and Bertha Puls, took place. Since its founding, over 900 burials have taken place, and several older 19th century graves have been relocated here as well.
