Originally known as the Kemble Cemetery, this graveyard began as a family burial ground. Abraham Kemble aquired the land on which the cemetery is located about 1860. He and his wife Mary were both buried here in 1867. In 1892, Kemble descendants gave the land to Liberty Baptist Church, later renamed First Baptist Church, Red Oak. The cemetery became a public burial ground after the turn of the century. Those interred here include generations of Kemble family members, area pioneers, and veterans of several wars, beginning with the Civil War.
