Notes: Originally, Cleburne Memorial Park was simply called the city cemetery. Then, when a Confederate Park adjoining the cemetery was established, both the park and the cemetery became known as Confederate Memorial Park. The land for the park was originally owned by Clarence Young Kouns and his wife Ann. It was purchased by the representatives of Pat Cleburne Camp Number 88 United Confederate Veterans: E.M. Heath, J.W. Dalton, J.P. Berry, O.T. Plummer, and T.J.Hooker. It was designated as a park for the Confederate soldiers and their descendants, and then after being incorporated into the city cemetery, it held the remains of the many Confederate soldiers who came to Johnson County after the Civil War. There were so many Civil War Veterans, mostly Confederate, that in 1921 the cemetery was designed into the shape of a Confederate Flag. Years later, the cemetery was renamed Cleburne Memorial Park.
