Early Dallas County settlers, George W. Glover acquired this land in 1844.  The property was first used as a cemetery for interment of 5-year old Sarah Beeman, who died on March 22, 1857.  In 1872, Glover deeded the property to his son, William Wald Glover (1846-1928) for whom the cemetery was named.  Among those buried here are the younger Glover and early Dallas settler and civic leader. Richard Lagow.  This community burial ground, which contains over 70 gravesites of pioneer settlers and their families, was last used in 1951.
