Browles Cemetery, Fannin County, Texas

A family named Young first owned this farm near the southwest corner of Dial where this graveyard is located. One of the Young daughters married a Browles and they continued to live on this farm so this burying plot was known as the Browles graveyard. Mrs. Marcus E. Jackson, who was buried here in 1925, was Margarette Young before her marriage and was a descendant of this Young family. It is possible that the following listings containing initials only (carved into native stone) are those of the Young family and the “D” standing for “died”.
