In 1934, in the midst of drought and the great depression, landowner Maple Wilson donated four acreas for a cemetery for the small community that bore his name. It was used briefly up until World War II. Today, the identities of only three burials are known. Infant Jay T. Sanderson (d. 1934): James Gentry (1885-1936), struck by lightning, leaving a wife and five children; and Minnie Elizabeth Baricek (1897-1935), who died quietly while nursing her eleventh child. Reportly, three to five infants of Mexican descent are also interred here. This burial groung is a reminder of the hard times faced by Bailey County families in the 1930s.[1]
