Waldrop Cemetery is a non-profit cemetery which serves the area around Brooks Community and Fairplay in western Panola County Texas.

This site will tell you something about the history of Waldrop Cemetery, how it is managed, who the Trustees are, who is buried in the cemetery, where to send contributions and how to contact the Waldrop Cemetery Association. We ask your help in making this a complete, accurate record of those buried in this cemetery. Click below if you have corrections, additions or suggestions!

Each year on the last Sunday in September families with loved ones buried here, gather to take a stroll through the cemetery and visit the graves then share the day with loved ones and old friends.
 
We have a small booth where someone sits to receive the donations that help us maintain the cemetery. 
 
At 11:00 AM a business meeting is held in the Tabernacle.  Everyone is invited to participate in this meeting where trustees are elected and important decisions are made regarding care of the cemetery.
 
At noon a covered dish luncheon is spread on the tables under the trees and everyone enjoys a fine meal.
 
We encourage everyone with a family member buried here to join us for this day.

Notice the white caps on top of the brick columns in the above picture. The caps were purchased by Rita Kennedy Woods. 
 
My son Kevin and I installed them and repaired some of the brickwork on September 10, 2010.
