This cemetery is located near the Magnet Cove Community on Gourdneck Valley Rd It is on private property. All the information below was given to Bonnie Stanley by Mrs. Reb Retherford, of Little Rock, in 1976. There was one and one-half acres set aside on David Retherfords farm for a family cemetery. There are four or five graves outside the fence which do not belong to the family and are unmarked. One belongs to a slave of Grandma Wood. (No one seemed to know who Grandma Wood was) Buried inside the fence are children, grandchildren and in-laws of David and Hannah Retherford. Not all of the children are buried here though.
