Near Carthage in Panola County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
The community of Deadwood was established in the 1830s by the Adam LaGrone family. A family burial ground was begun on the LaGrone farm in 1847 when Adam LaGrone's wife Christeena, died. Adam was buried next to his wife nine years later. Although the land did not officially appear in county deed records as a public cemetery until 1859, members of the community were buried here before that time. A testament to early Panola County history, the Deadwood Cemetery is still in use and maintained by descendants of pioneer families.
