Sugar Hill Cemetery

From Henderson, take Hwy 79 east to FM 3231. Turn left and go less than 4 miles. The maps are incorrect from here because of the mine. Turn left onto FM 1251. Go less than two miles, turn right back onto CR 3231 (County Line Rd) go about 4 miles turn right onto CR 242 and travel 2.3 miles. At dead end, turn left into Cemetery drive way about 100 yds. The cemetery is on top of the hill. Gina Heffernan (catalog below)

I transcribed this cemetery from photos located on the Tombstone Photo page. I don't know if it is complete. It is actually in Panola County but on the county line and there was no lake when it was established.
