Historical Marker
     Raleigh Cemetery was named for the community of Raleigh, an early settlement in Navarro County. Raleigh's post office was established in 1900, and for a time the town maintained a church, grist mill, blacksmith shop and school. Although the first marked grave is that of Lauretty Frost (1852-54), Raleigh Cemetery was not mentioned in the Navarro County deed books until 1885, when A. Barry and his wife, M. E. Barry, set aside 1.5 acres of land for a burial ground. The cemetery, which is still in use, contains approximately 170 graves.
