Cemetery notes and/or description:
This small cemetery is located in a very desolate spot in northeast Cooke County, very near the Red River. It is 4.2 miles north of the Walnut Bend School on CR 127. This is part of the former plantation of the widow, Ann D. Black, who married Col. William Young in 1858. They had 53 slaves and it is reasonable to assume that some of these people are also buried in the area, although the location of their graves is unknown.

Col. Young was shot and killed on Hickory Creek during the tensions which surrounded the Great Hanging at Gainesville in 1862 and is buried here. Also of interest is the grave of Colmare Black who died in 1854. This may be one of the oldest dated markers found in Cooke County.
