History of Bollinger Cemetery
About 1875 Noah Monroe Bollinger moved his family from Bollinger County Missouri to Eastland County, Texas, seeking a climate beneficial to the health of his wife Amanda Clarice (Hoover) Bollinger. A son Daniel Benjamin, and a daughter, Emma came with their parents. Daniel Benjamin returned to Missouri. In 1877 he married Sarah Elizabeth Clubb, and later returned with her to Eastland County.
On March 29, 1881, Avery R Bollinger, a twenty two month old son of Daniel Benjamin and Sarah Elizabeth died. A site for a family cemetery was selected on the property of Daniel Benjamin, about half way between his residence and that of his father, Noah. Here Avery was buried.
All fourteen graves in the cemetery, with the possible exception of an unidentified infant grave, are members of the Bollinger family, or of their relatives, the Hoover, Abernathy, Gibbs, and Whitener families, who all came from Missouri.
