Lee County, Arkansas Cemeteries

 

Miller Cemetery

(also known as Old Moro Cemetery)

Moro, Arkansas

 

 

 

Location: In Moro, between Hwy 238 & Hwy 78 on the south side of Hog Tusk Creek

 

This old cemetery is located in the middle of a field on a tree-covered mound.  It is grown-up, and from personal experience, I know that there are yellow jackets, chiggers, and poison ivy everywhere.  A lot of stones are broken, and the grounds appear to have quite a few 4-wheeler trails throughout.   The earliest burial we could find was that of Polly Miller in 1859, however it is believed that there are older burials.

 

Jane Hartley and I started transcribing it on September 11, 2005.  My mother, Martha, and my brother, Darrel, also assisted.  After the yellow jackets ran us off, I went back the next day with my sister, Cricket, and my niece, Randi, to record the additional stones.  You can click on the names below to view photos of each stone.

If you know of anyone else buried here, and would like to add their name, please contact me.  I can also create a link for you to any of these names if you find someone that belongs to your family.  The information presented is as correct as possible, however you may want to verify its accurateness.
