Liberty Hill, Texas

History

Liberty Cemetery. Originally known as Liberty Hill, the small but thriving community that once stood near this site included a school, two churches, a general store, drugstore, blacksmith shop and a cotton gin. Land was deeded for a cemetery in 1899 by Samuel B. Webb (1856-1931) and wife, Amanda J. Webb (1869-1954). The earliest dated graves are those of their daughter-in-law, Viola Wood Holder (1889-1907), who died in childbirth, and her infant son who did not survive. Confederate soldiers and veterans of World Wars I and II are laid to rest here, along with generations of families who settled and developed this area of Eastland County. Historic Texas Cemetery – 2000.
