The oldest known burials in this Pioneer community cemetery is that of Wiley Wilda Potts. (Dec 20, 1822-Dec 15, 1852). The one-Acre tract then part of the George Akers Grant, was legally set aside for burial purposes before 1860. More land was later donated and by 1910 the site included 3.27 acres. The Birdville Cemetery Association organized under a 50-Year charter in 1917 was re-chartered in 1967. The cemetery contained 552 known graves in 1965. Several families have four generations buried in the same plot. The site now encompasses seven acres and is still used for burials. Texas Historical Commission (1975).
Maintenance of the cemetery is handled by the members of the Birdville Cemetery Association. Most have family members that are located in the cemetery. Donations to the cemetery are always welcome.
