Crossroads, near the site that became Horton, twelve miles northeast of Carthage in northeastern Panola County, was established after the Civil War. A school was operating there by 1897, when it had an enrollment of forty-six. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, a school, and a number of houses. Its school was later consolidated with the DeBerry school, and by the mid-1960s only a cemetery and a few scattered houses remained in the area.
