Ashley County, Arkansas

Located southwest of Hamburg, this cemetery included about 20 legible headstones in October, 2002. However, there are many more burials– possibly over 100– as indicated by broken concrete markers and grave depressions. There are also some markers which had painted inscriptions which are no longer legible. The cemetery is overgrown and generally unkept.

To reach the cemetery from U. S. Highway 425 in Hamburg, travel west on West Jackson Street (Arkansas Highway 189) for 3.25 miles from the Jackson-Highway 425 intersection. Then turn right on Ashley Road 16. After a little more than a tenth of a mile, bear left on Ashley 16 when the road splits into Ashley 16 and Barnett Trail. Go about 1.7 miles and then turn right on an unmarked gravel road. This road is now blocked by a gate. Walk up the road about 1/10 mile, and at a deer camp, bear left. The cemetery is located in the woods about 80 yards from the camp. Coordinates for the cemetery are latitude North 33 degrees, 12 minutes, 26.7 seconds and longitude West 91 degrees, 52 minutes, 4.3 seconds.
