Bear Creek, Arkansas
This virtually unknown Lee County area cemetery is out in the woods, south of
the St. Francis
District office. It is located off Hwy 44; located to the
north of the road that goes to the cabin leases. The pasture allotment has a locked gate. The cemetery is about 2 miles from the
highway and is on private land on a south slope.
Sue Foster submitted this list on October
6, 2005. As far as she knows,
this cemetery doesn’t have a name.
The property is still a 2 acre tract of private land. It was conveyed to the Trinity Church
years ago. It shows up as a tiny
square of private land on the St. Francis map. If you know the name of this cemetery or
have any additional information to share, please contact me.
walked to the cemetery on October 29, 2005. Cricket and I recorded the names and
took photos of all visible stones.
The cemetery appears to have been abandoned for a long time. There were numerous funeral home markers
that were no longer readable and many sunken places indicating more graves.
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.
