Texas State Historical Marker
The pioneer Daily family and others founded the Dalys Community in the 1850s. When Ethalinda Meriwether, wife of Dr. Francis Lewis Meriwether, died in 1876, Charles B. Dailey and his sister and brother-in-law, Emma Catherine and James A. Hill, gave land for a community cemetery. In addition to the families of the Dalys/Dailey Community, the cemetery also served residents of nearby Reynard. Those interred here include veterans of the Civil War, World War I and World War II. The name was officially changed to Dailey Community Cemetery in 1981.
