ARLESTON, TEXAS. Arleston was a post office community six miles northwest of Deberry in northeastern Panola County. It was probably established in the late 1870s. Its post office operated from 1881 until 1906, and in the early 1890s the settlement had two general stores, a cotton gin and mill, and an estimated population of thirty. By the mid-1930s Arleston no longer appeared on highway maps.
