Here's a piece of history on the Tucumcari cemetery:
The first Tucumcari cemetery was located west of the city and north of the current location of the cemetery. A new cemetery known as "Sunnyside" was later begun.
The first burials took place about 1903. This name was changed in the late 1930s, to Tucumcari Memorial Park Cemetery after completion by the CCC boys of a rock wall surrounding the cemetery.
The Civic Works Committee announced in 1935 the opening of the acreage west of, and adjoining the cemetery, enlarging the cemetery from eight to more than 30 acres. (I don't know, but I suspect they took in the first old burials.)
The above info came from the 1997 book "In the Shadow of the Mountain - Living in Tucumcari" by Debra Ann Whittington. This book would make a good resource book for the Quay website. Don McAlavy
