1st Lt. David Richard Reynolds Camp #2270, SCV, Mount Pleasant, Texas


Traylor Cemetery

This is a family cemetery that was set aside for the burial of Traylor family members. It has not been used for some time but is well maintained. It is found in the rural Southeast part of Titus County on private land. Dunston Traylor, who is buried here, originally owned the land. A descendent of his, Ida Traylor, owned the land and set aside one acre land for the cemetery. Not all the acre is enclosed but there is a chain link fence around the marked gravesites and the enclosed area is well maintained. It was established prior to the Civil War.

From the Titus County courthouse take Madison Street south for 0.3 miles to the intersection with Ferguson Road (US 272). Turn left on Ferguson and proceed east. Ferguson then changes designation to Texas 49. After 8.2 miles there is currently, as of this writing, a private drive on the right. The remains of the old Traylor home is marked by a standing chimney. The cemetery can be found in the woods about 150 yard northeast of the old homestead.

There are approximately 7 graves that seem to be marked by a concrete slab at the head and foot of the grave. The twin children of Dunston and Frances Traylor are interred in separate concrete crypts beside Dunston’s grave.

At the present time, there is no Guardian for this cemetery. If you are interested, or if you know of any other Confederate Soldier that is buried here and not listed then please Contact Us.
