Byfield

Byfield, just off Farm Road 1971 sixteen miles southwest of Carthage in southwestern Panola County, was established after the Civil War. A school began operating there around 1900, and in 1906 it had an enrollment of sixty-two. In the mid-1930s the community had a school, a church, and a number of houses. After World War II the school was consolidated with the Carthage schools, and by the mid-1960s only a church, a cemetery, and a few scattered houses remained in the area. In the early 1990s Byfield was a dispersed rural community.
