Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Baxter Cemetery is also known as Bosque Farms Project Community Cemetery, however it is believed that only the Baxter family ever used this cemetery. In the Great Depression, the US Resettlement Administration (nowadays the Department of Agriculture) had the Bosque Farms Project wherein they moved New Mexicans from the Dust Bowl areas of the Northeastern counties to Valencia county. 42 families were selected to move by lottery. The relocation included giving each family land, water, and a house. The cemetery was also a benefit, but the vast majority of the citizens chose burial in one of the many parish cemeteries in the county. The cemetery is at the end of Quiet Lane and adjoins a private dwelling which is the adobe house seen in the picture.
