BANKS CEMETERY ( Black Cemetery)

Hopkins Co, Cemeteries of Texas

by June England Tuck and Deborah Tuck Young


Cemetery is located in the northwest part of Hopkins County. From the Sulphur Springs town square, take Hwy 154 north to Birthright. At Birthright turn left on FM road 71 to Peerless. This cemetery is hard to find, and it would be best to ask someone in the Peerless community as to its location. It lies in a pasture on the left side of the road between Peerless and Emblem.
