Updated February, 2012

The Bethel Cemetery is located north of the unincorporated area of North Crossett. To reach the cemetery, begin at the intersection of Highways 52 and 133 in North Crossett. From that intersection, go north on Highway 133 for 3.5 miles. Then turn right (east), on Bethel Road. The cemetery is about 2/10 miles from the highway on the left. The exact location is Latitude North 33 degrees, 12 minutes, 48.8 seconds and Longitude West 91 degrees, 55 minutes, 17.3 seconds.

As of March, 2004, a small church building remains standing just adjacent to the cemetery gate, but was near collapse. As of 2012, the building has been removed. That church, when it was active, was the Bethel Baptist Church. Comments or corrections may be sent to mailto:editor@ashleycountyledger.com

This listing updated in October, 2005, to reflect the addition of five tombstones which are located about 25 yards west of the northwest corner of the cemetery. Those listings are shown in italics.

Another update, in February, 2012, includes stones added since the last update as well as a couple of omissions.

Listings are generally alphabetical by last name, first name, birth date, death date, and comments, if any.
