Bracken (Brackens) was a farming community off Farm Road 31 fifteen miles northeast of Carthage in northeastern Panola County. The site was first settled between 1835 and 1838 by the Thomas Bracken family, and in 1900 the settlement had a blacksmith shop, a gristmill, and a syrup mill. By the mid-1930s only a few scattered houses and a cemetery remained in the area. In the early 1990s the site was still marked by a cemetery.
