Hays Cemetery


By June England Tuck and Deborah Tuck Young

Peerless, Hopkins Co. TX

Indexed in the 1970's
Cemetery is located in the northwest part of county, in the Peerless Community. From Sulphur Springs, take Hwy 19, North, to Birthright, take FM Road 71 to Peerless. Go through Peerless, take second left hand turn. The cemetery will be way back in a pasture, in a grove of trees. Said to be on Old Lindley land. One should stop in Peerless and get help. We didn't know the name of the cemetery, so we named it Hays.

Only two bought markers.
