STONE'S MILL, TEXAS. Stone's Mill (Stone's Mills) was a rural community ten miles northwest of Carthage in northwestern Panola County. It was established after the Civil War. A post office opened there in 1886, and by the early 1890s the small settlement had a general store, a gristmill, and a cotton gin. Its post office closed in 1900, and local mail was sent to Fair Play. By around 1910 Stone's Mill was no longer shown on maps. No population estimates were available.
