A brief review of burials listed on Find-A-Grave indicates that there were many burials in this cemetery before it was incorporated in 1917. One of the first burials was the infant daughter of Mr. & Mrs. George Caldwell who died of whooping cough on Saturday, Oct. 10th 1891.
And on 25 June 1896 Marie DeBeque, the wife of Dr. W.A.E. DeBeque, for whom the town was named for, died and was buried in the De Beque Cemetery.
