Signed by School Board members: David Arnold, President; John Elliott, L G Galbreath, A Whyte,Joseph Thompson, J S Handley, and L G Tyler on 22 March 1877.  The cemetery may have been called Leek/Leeke Cemetery at one time.  America E Wheeler Bragg, first wife of Lewis Bragg died 26 November 1863.  Speculation is that she was buried in Bragg Cemetery although no tombstone has been found.
