According to Mansfield Historical Society, Nov 11, 2001:
"The area where
the present Rendon Cemetery stands was deeded to the community by W.L. Norwood
in 1897. The first grave is disputed to be either Elizabeth (Lizzie) Huston, a
member of the Washam family, or as another source reports, the grave of a baby
resting under present F.M. 1187. The early care of the cemetery was accepted by
the citizens of the community as their responsibility. Most were farmers and
would take a day off from their duties to have a general cleaning when
necessary. Later, interested people formed a cemetery association. It was
organized on May 29, 1955 at the Retta Baptist Church. In 1957, the Association
decided to raise funds for a fence around the cemetery and in 1964, at a total
cost of $1,085.50 the project was complete. Today, the cemetery had reached near
its capacity and it had become necessary to close it. Many pioneer spirits were
laid to rest in the Rendon Cemetery."
