Black Cemetery

This cemetery is located in the northeast part of Cooke County,
Texas and is to the west of CR 127 a few miles north of the town
of Walnut Bend near what is known as Horse Shoe Bend of the Red
River. It is located on what used to be the Young Plantation.
It is on leased government land and is only accessible with a
key and the leaser's consent.
The oldest readable marker is dated 1854. The most notable grave
is that of Colonel William C. Young who was assassinated from ambush by
an alleged member of the 'Union League'. This set off a wave of
hysteria and revenge which would result in a total of 42 men being
executed in what was to become known as 'The Great Hanging'.
