Land for the Hochheim Cemetery was donated by Rachel S. Crawford (1806-1879). She and her husband, James (1800-1861), were pioneer settlers in the Hochheim community. They and many of their descendants are buried here. The graveyard contains many unmarked sites where pioneer immigrants who entered Texas through the nearby port of Indianola were interred. Also buried here are veterans of the Civil War, Spanish American War, and World Wars I and II. In use for more than 100 years, the Hochheim Cemetery is an important element in the community's heritage.
