Phillips-Taylor Cemetery
Guardian: James Robert Reynolds

The Phillips-Taylor Cemetery is located in Eastern Titus County in the town of Cookville. Cookville has an interesting history and the cemetery attests to some of it. The town was once thriving with multiple business establishments and industries. Tradition has it that A. B. Cook donated the land for the town derived their names from him. The cemetery is fenced and kept in very good condition. It is said that the cemetery was started when some of the populace became concerned that the expansion for the Cookville Cemetery was not the best suited for burial purposes. Burials continued to take place in both cemeteries. There are 2 unreadable Funeral Home Markers (FHMs) marking a grave site.
