I see Strawn is down in the corner of Palo Pinto Co. near the border to Eastland Co. There was a post office named Tanner in Eastland Co, but was discontinued in 1910. Often a town will remain for sometime, even when they are too small to retain their post office. I've seen people who lived near a county border buried in a cemetery just across the line in the next county. Maybe the cemetery is physically closer, or better maintained, who knows.

You might try checking out Eastland Co, TX, and post queries on their GenWeb site, see if anyone knows about the cemetery. I don't see it listed on their website, but cemeteries often change names over time, too -- does it ever get easy??? LOL

Happy Hunting (^_^)
