Dorothy Albrecht and Rox Ann Johnson, great-great and great-great-great granddaughters, at the dedication of the Citizens of the Republic of Texas medallions for James and Eliza Ann (Morgan) McMillan in April 1989.

The following was written by Dorothy Wallace Albrecht, who researched the cemetery in great detail. Her files are now in the possession of Rox Ann Johnson.

My first recollection of the Osage cemetery was a "cemetery cleaning," probably in 1934. I remember the long row of white cloths filled with food of every description and people with hoes, rakes, and other tools for cleaning. I also remember my Uncle "Mitt" taking me to the back edge of the cemetery to show me a grave of a little girl whose parents were on their way to somewhere when the child became ill and died.

This work started with an old inventory of the cemetery that Bill Stein had in the Nesbitt Memorial Library archives. Then there was a yellow legal pad where he had written names and death dates of those he had found in old Colorado Citizens. I then began looking at my family research, and the records of the old Osage Methodist Church. Finally, I started reading the old Weimar Mercury newspapers for additional information. Thus, it is that we have a listing of many more burials than you will find headstones in the cemetery. Assisting with on site research were members of the Monument Hill Chapter of the Children of the Republic of Texas, Rox Ann Johnson, Aunt Grace Kocurek and George "Doug" Goode. The rest of the information has been gleaned from the Colorado Citizen (later the Colorado County Citizen), Weimar Mercury, Austin American, Eagle Lake Headlight, Banner Press, Osage Methodist Church records on file in the Nesbitt Memorial Library archives, the James and Eliza Ann McMillan Family Bible, and various other resources including descendants of those buried (here) there. (In all of my research, I have not found who that little girl was nor exactly where she was buried.)

A monument with the names and dates of those buried in unmarked graves was erected at the entrance of the cemetery in July 2001. This was a project of the Taylor-McMillan family reunion with help from some of the relatives of those named on the marker.

While reading the old obituaries, I became as interested in them as I was in recording information about the people buried. Thus came the decision to reference the obituaries to the listing of burials. You will note that some are but a sentence or two long; while others go on for columns. But what I hope you will note is all of the extra information about the area, the times, the people and how they arrived at this part of Texas.
