A Texas Historical Commission plaque is near the front gate which reads: “In the 1860’s, the Roberts and Teague families came to the Bee Cave area where, for generations, their skills as farmers, ranchers, cedar choppers, coal kiln burners, and homemakers helped to shape its development and culture. It is said that this cemetery was established in 1898 when Joseph Roberts (1843-1925) offered the site to the grieving Simons family for an infant’s burial. A number of veterans are laid to rest here, including Alfred R. (Buck) Simpson (1895-1961), the second most decorated soldier of World War I. This burial ground records the lives of the pioneers and families of these once isolated canyons of Travis County.”
