King Bayou Cemetery

King Bayou Cemetery is located in Cornerstone, Arkansas. It is an abandoned Cemetery.

I am in Franklin, Tenn, but am writing you to let you know about a cemetery that has mostly been destroyed by someone. It is on Kings Bayou near Cornerstone in Jefferson County, Ark. The precious few stones left are  mostly those of my family, one being my great grandmother . The last names on the 5 or 6 left are all Garrett, but one or two. That was my maiden name. It was, about 30 years ago, a nice size cemetery enclosed by a wrought iron fence. Just a little of the fence is left and you can determine some of the size by the base of some stones still left in some weeds here and there. This has got to have been done by big farm equipment because of the bending of some of the wrought iron. It had the misfortune to be bordering a huge row crop field. It also had huge trees in it at one time and after my Grandfather, who kept an eye on it died, or "someone" had them cut down. I think because they were shading a tiny part of the crops. Anyway, as of a year ago it was still there. I hope it still is  today, but the remaining stones could have been pushed in the Bayou. Just to let you know.
