The Antioch Cemetery was established December 17, 1880, when Mr. W. H. Grazier and his wife, Mattio, deeded to County Judge, J. Stewart Cleveland, about one acre of land for education and cemetery purposes. The first grave appears to be that of Charlie Bradley, 1882.  There may have been earlier deaths, but no record of such.  This cemetery was vandalized at one time.
