Historical Marker

This site was first used as a cemetery in 1851 when property owner John R. Jones buried his infant son here.  The land was later donated as a public burial ground for the pioneer settlers of the surrounding Wilmeth settlement by Mary Virginia Dunn McLarry and her father Robert A. McLarry.  The earliest marked graves are those of a brother and sister, Henry E. & Adella M. Hall, who died in 1870.  Also buried here is J.B. Wilmeth, for whom the community was named.  The site is now used by descendants of the pioneer area families.
