Janice Hughes Talley, Cemeteries of Texas

Hunt County Historical Commission Chairman Carol Taylor says the commission is responsible for documenting and preserving cemeteries in the county.  She says they have recently identified an abandoned cemetery near the Hunt, Fannin, Delta county lines.  They believe it is the Jot-Em-Down Cemetery, near the old Jot-Em-Down community.
