"Named for John Barron (1831-1887), a civil war veteran who came here from Virginia and bought a good farm in 1870. Married first to Delilah Ward (d. 1860's), then to Margaret McElroy. He had 15 children. About 1875, he gave land for a church-school building and this community cemetery, where he and some other members of his family were later buried. William Jenkins (1829-1878), who also was a Confederate veteran is the earliest known among some 6 dozen interments. The burial ground, closed about 1920 is cared for by descendents who have formed (in 1971) the Barron Cemetery Association."
