This cemetery was first known as the Holtzclaw Burying Ground and all early Holsclaw/Holtzclaws are buried here. The first to be buried here was Sarah Huffman Holsclaw in 1843. The story that has been passed down through the family was that "snow was on the ground and they hitched a grey horse to a sled and took her to the back of the garden and buried her". The Holsclaw family donated the original ground throughout the years for burials. More ground was purchased by interested citizens. The Union #2 Baptist Church was established there in 1905. The cemetery is located to the rear of the church.
