Only two stones were found. They were for:
|Brown||Robert||08 Feb 1922||24 Mar 1996|
|Moore||Thomas J||25 May 1942||09 Oct 1998|
County Home Cemetery, also known as Farmer's Cemetery or County Cemetery
The last burial recorded was in 1946. The ashes of several homeless men were also interred here.
There remains only one stone, that of James Sheckle, who passed from this life in 1885. It is documented that the first patient was admitted to the home in 1870. Therefore there are likely unknown others resting here for which records no longer exist.
The Dallas County Hospital was located on these grounds from 1934-1954.
Although there are no stones, the following are interred here as verified by Dallas County Records.
