Young Cemetery

Panola Co. Cemeteries of TX

Surveyed by Don Austin ca 1981

Submitted by Gloria B. Mayfield, Panola  Co Coordinator


Location: About 2.5 miles southwest of Clayton Community, south of State Highway 315, on Panola County Road 158.

There are estimated to be between 12 and 15 graves in this cemetery, 8-10 of them are non-identifiable marked graves and only one is still identifiable.

The following description of this cemetery was given by Don Austin in his privately circulated book "42 Lost Cemeteries".

"Located in moderate woodland on a small hill. This is a classic example of graves marked by the planting of cedar trees at the head and foot of a grave. About eight or ten graves are so marked by cedar trees, some of which have been cut down before they were allowed to mature. The others are quite large, possibly having been here at least a hundred years. Most of the graves appear to be full-length graves and are lined up in two separate rows. This is called the Young Cemetery after a former landowner."
