Parkdale-Wilmot, Ashley County Arkansas

Updated June, 2003

The name of this cemetery was updated in June, 2008. This small cemetery is located on Ashley Road 34 southwest of Parkdale and northwest of Wilmot. To reach the road from Wilmot, go to Highway 173 north of the city limits and turn west. Go a total of 1.4 miles or about one mile after crossing Bayou Bartholomew, turn north on Ashley 34. The cemetery will be on the right about 1.3 miles north of the intersection of Highway 173 and Ashley Road 34. To reach the cemetery from Parkdale, begin at the west end of the Bayou Bartholomew bridge and go west on Arkansas Highway 8 for 2.3 miles. Then turn south on Ashley 34 and go 3.4 miles. The cemetery will be on the left side of the road. From Hamburg, follow Arkansas Highway 8 15.75 miles east of its intersection with Highway 425 in Hamburg and then turn south (right) on Ashley Road 34.

It appears that part of the cemetery is black and part is white. There are obviously a number of unmarked graves, as well as graves where the funeral home markers are no longer legible.

The precise coordinates are latitude North 33 degrees, 05 minutes, 23.4 seconds and longitude West 91 degrees, 35 minutes, 20.4 seconds.
