Location: From Clarendon, take S.H. 70 about 1 mile south to Citizens' Cemetery; marker near road in southwest corner of cemetery.

History: In this first cemetery of Donley County, sixteen rods west lie the first dead of Old Clarendon. Here white civilization sank its roots in sadness and from the graves in this sacred acre strong pioneer spirits turned to face the future with greater love for the land and a firmer determination to build for a tomorrow which we know today.
