This cemetery first served as a burial ground for the family of Joseph and Catherine McCoy, pioneer settlers in the Green DeWitt Colony. It was later used by residents of the Sandies Chapel community. The earliest graves date from the 1860s. Among those interred here are San Jacinto veteran William Taylor, citizens of the Republic of Texas, local Masonic leaders, and Civil War veterans, including members of the Sandies home guard. Also buried here are four pioneer Methodist ministers, A. A. Smithwick, T. G. Russell, James E. Vernor, and C. W. Elkins.
