GREEN CEMETERY

This is my list of who's what in the Green Cemetery.  I hope you don't mind that I left my notes with the listings.  I have more information about several of the folks listed there and could
write pages about the GREENs, but I'll refrain.  :-)  You asked for directions to the cemetery.  When I first found the cemetery listings (very incomplete) in a DAR book at the Little Rock public library, the directions were:

Green Cemetery, McNeil, Columbia, Arkansas, 1 1/2 mi N. on College Hill Road; left 1/2 mi on Lamartine Road; left 1/2 mi

Well, I couldn't follow these directions when I visited Columbia County, and I wound around for quite a while before I finally stopped out on the Waldo Road (Road No. 98) at a country store and asked for directions.  The road leading to the cemetery is just west of this store (I know that's a big help!).  You turn right on this road off 98, go a few miles (I think it was
about 2) and the cemetery is on the left.  It is a very neat cemetery - someone is obviously taking care of it - I wish I knew who. So perhaps the directions given in the DAR book were better than I can give - if you know the area, you can probably follow them better than I could - the roads weren't marked very well out there.  :-)  The Green Cemetery is supposedly
located on the family's land.  I know they had substantial holdings there. Supposedly Sarah (Sally) Flinn, the grandma of the GREEN clan, stated that she wanted to be buried there and she was the first one.  If anyone wants to contact me about any of the info on this listing, feel free to do so.
