According to local tradition the settlers who established the town of Blanket (2 miles east) about 1870 named it for a Native American blanket they found on the banks of a nearby creek. The earliest marked grave in this cemetery, which served the rural community of Blanket, is that of Luperda Cox who died in 1876. The cemetery contains many of the area's earliest settlers and their descendants, including several teachers of the former Eureka School which was located just across the road from this site. The cemetery remains active and continues to serve the area. (1995)
