built a line through this area, a Group of investors formed the Texas Colony Association
with the Goal of promoting a town. named for one of the Company Directors. The town of Lawrence
was established and soon boasted numerous homes and businesses. This community Cemetery
began that same year with the burial of seven month old Katie D. Hibbler, including those
of many pioneers. The Lawrence Cemetery stands as a reminder of the Area's Early History.
