This cemetery is in the Cauthron Townhip of Logan County; however, many Scott Countians are buried there from the Tate community.

LOCATION: There are several ways to go in. At the time we visited, not all roads were named. From Waldron: Go north on 71 highway to US 23 at Elm Park, about 7 miles. Turn east (right) and go about 3-4 miles until you reach the Logan Co. line. Turn right onto Crazy Duck Crossing Road. Continue on this road (will be hilly and curvey) until you reach a "Y". This road should be Tate Road. Turn left onto this road. Follow 2-3 miles to another "Y". Turn left again. Stay on main road for 3-4 miles and you will come to another "Y". Turn left again. You will go up a hill - about 200 yards. At the top of the hill, the road "Y's" again. Turn right. Go straight east until you cross a cattle guard. Continue another few hundred yards. The cemetery can be seen on your left on a hill, and you can drive right up to it. This cemetery sounds difficult to get to but the roads are good and it's fairly easy to find. The cemetery is well-maintained and is an active cemetery enclosed by a chain-link fence.

Please note: There have been a couple of surveys done of this cemetery. In previous ones, there were many bits of information added which were NOT on the tombstone. Dates, full names, relationships, misspellings and some wrong information was found. This survey contains ONLY the information on the stone. I have not added anything else. Every effort was made to get it right. We apologize for any errors. Digital pictures were also taken of each stone. Some concrete blocks just would not photograph.

Survey taken June 2004 by Carolyn Hanna and Lorene Davis

*The concrete blocks were placed by several old-timers who remembered the names of those buried there and have been maintained over the years. There are still a few fieldstones.
*There are three concrete blocks marked “Unknown”.
*There is one tombstone that is now unreadable. There are also several concrete blocks that the camera just wouldn't pick up.
*Location of these graves are as follows: Two just north of Sarrah Taylor; Two north of Brigance plot; One between O'Neal & Mercer.
*The concrete block marked “Mrs. Williams” belongs to Mrs. Thompson. This information is from her grandson, Burl Williams of Waldron, given July 2004. He stated that this concrete block was incorrectly marked and is not his grandmother.
*On Minnie Mae Johnson Taylor, there is a discrepancy between her footstone and headstone.
*On John Henry Brigance stone there is a brass plate engraved with the following:
“In honor of John Henry Brigance Confederate Veteran, Pvt, Co. K., 32nd Texas Cavalry Ector’s Brigade in the War Between the States. Battles: Richmond, KY Murphreesboro, TN Jackson MS Chickamauga, GA Atlanta Campaign Altoona, GA Nashville, TN Wounded 4-3-1865 Spanish Fort, AL”
*The three Shackelford children were previously recorded as being buried in the Old Taylor Cemetery and that they were the only three with marked stones there. This is clearly incorrect. In this Taylor Cemetery, there is one tall, square tombstone which is engraved on three sides. One grave is in front of it, and there is a grave on each side of it. All three graves are clearly marked with engraved footstones marked MES, EES, and ACS.

The following names were included on a previous census but stones were not found for them:
Balentine, Ervin (baby)
Balentine John
Boney, Lucinda A. “Jamie”
Fane (Fain) Bill
Hobbs, K.E.
Musgrove, Nancy Shackelford
Taylor, Berry - (This man with the birth/death dates recorded on another census is buried at Carolan Cemetery)
Taylor, Morine
Wilson, Grandpa
