|Clay Sink Church Road|
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This small cemetery is on a hill, in the most northeastern part of Pasco County, only minutes from both Sumter and Hernando Counties. This area got the name Clay Sink from the fact that there is a clay sinkhole in the area. The land that is now Clay Sink Cemetery was part of 120 acres purchased on May 20 1862 by Harrison Slaughter and his wife Martha Ann. Their infant daughter was the beginning of the cemetery when she died in 1873. It is now the final resting place for many of the pioneer families and their descendants of this area. In October of 2006 this cemetery was declared a historical site.
