Volunteers from the Dallas Genealogical Society inventoried this cemetery in March 1972. It was first published by the Dallas Genealogical Society in Dallas County Texas: Genealogical Data From Early Cemeteries Vol. 1, 1982. The editor cautioned that many dates on stones were known to be incorrect.
The Texas Historic Commission Marker says this:
“James and Eliza (Record) Parrish received a 640-acre Peters Colony land grant and settled here in 1853. When James died later that year, Eliza set aside one-half acre of land for a family burial ground. Since then, more than 35 members of the Parrish family have been buried here, including Eliza (d. 1918), her second husband Henry Parrish (James’ brother, d. 1866), and 6 of their 7 children and their descendants. Eliza’s father, Josiah Record, and two of her brothers, John and Silas, are also buried here. The cemetery records this extended family’s long-time presence in Coppell. 1991”
