HART CEMETERY – NEW BLUFF SPRINGS CEMETERY
This list includes the information from the marked stones in the present Hart Cemetery plus the names listed by the U. S. Engineers that were moved from the Bluff Springs Cemetery in the Norfork Dam Basin in the early 1940s. There were 33 graves moved from Bluff Springs Cemetery that’s counting the 14 unknowns. There were three graves moved from the Herron Cemetery to the Hart Cemetery, two were unknowns. Five of the graves in the Bluff Springs Cemetery were moved to the Mountain Home Cemetery and you will find their names at the end of this list.
Of the graves moved I was not able to find any marked stones for any of them other than the Hollands.
At present there is no name posted for this cemetery located on Baxter County Road 62 just off Highway 5 South. Cemetery is in bad shape, stones broken and weeds waist high. There is no fence on the west side where there is a small landing strip. In the north east corner just inside the fence is a Historical Marker, which reads:
“Old Military Road”
“About 1800 near this spot white man established the first trail from east to west across Baxter County. Later some of the Cherokee Indians were moved to Oklahoma using this route which was known as the Trail of Tears.”
