Cemetery notes and/or description:
CEMETERY HISTORY taken for the Waller Co Cemetery Book published in 1977.
The Kirby Chapel Cemetery, so named because Colonel Jared E., Kirby and his wife Helen Marrs Swearengin Kirby, gave the first land which was to be used for a non-denominational church, school and burying ground for the community. It is about 2 miles north of Prairie View University, where, before the University had its beginnings, Colonel Kirby and Mrs Kirby had their home.

As the needs of the community grew after the Civil War, more land was needed for the cemetery. On January 4, 1888, two additional acres were added and in 1897, another acre was added.

Various contributors have photographed all the memorials for this cemetery as of 1/2010.
