Divide Cemetery

"In 1896, the Smith and Chapman families donated 4 acres here for a cemetery and church lot. A sanctuary for all faiths was built on the site the same year to serve the scattered ranches along the divide between the watersheds of the Colorado and north Concho Rivers."
"First to be buried here was mrs. H. A. (Callie) Chapman (1870-97). The cemetery contains about 100 graves, including those of the earliest settlers of this area of Coke County and veterans of World Wars I and II and Korea."
"The cemetery is still used by descendants of many pioneers." - Texas Historical Commission road sign
