     This site was originally part of a tract owned by pioneer area settlers Richard and Polly Golden. They later gave it to their daughter Elizabeth and her husband Cornelius Crenshaw, who buried a son here in the 1840s. They deeded the property to trustees of the Mt. Zion Methodist Church and Cemetery in 1850. Additional land, conveyed to the local farmers' Grange in 1875, was included when the group disbanded. Still in use, the burial ground contains the graves of many early leaders of Panola County and veterans of American military service.
