Ray County History 1973, p. 233: Hickory Grove Cemetery was established January 1869 on land donated and sold by Jane Dulaney and Anna J. Smith for graveyard purposes. The first burial there was that of Mary E. Smith who was dragged to her death by a horse. Her grave marks the center of the cemetery, and all the land around her grave was donated. It is a beautiful country cemetery located seven miles north of Richmond, off State Road F, and gets its name from the grove of hickory trees.
