Location: About 2 miles North of Pine Hill, West of Rusk-Panola County line and FM 1798. Located in the Robert Ross Headright.
Located on fairly level ground in the edge of moderate woodlands enclosed by a barbed wire fence, most of which is in bad need of repair. A small gate exists on the East Side, while large undergrowth and a few large trees prevail in the interior. The cemetery is fairly large and contains a very high percentage of identifiable graves, as well as a very high percentage of child graves, being almost abnormal. Many of the child graves are marked with small homemade cement markers, and there are two or three child graves that are as long as adult graves.
Another interesting feature is a set of homemade markers made from large pieces of petrified wood set into a concrete base possessing a small steel plate bearing the identification. The largest of these is about 2 feet by 4 feet long.
This cemetery is only a few hundred yards west of Trammel's Trace and what was once the old Sharon Community.
John and Orra J. Stone were the great grandparents of Leila Belle Stone LaGrone and Silvannus and Mary E. Dobbs Stone were the grandparents of Leila Belle Stone LaGrone, Local Historian and teacher.
There are approximately 45-55 graves with 37 identifiable. Earliest known grave is 1853 and the latest known grave is 1924. Presumably all white.
