This cemetery was created to be the final resting place for soldiers who guarded the Fort and the San Antonio-San Diego mail line in the mid 1850's. Some civilians are also buried here. The soldiers were moved to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. Life was so hard that few soldiers or civilians reached the age of 40.
