Directions: Highway 5, four miles west of Benton, on right Side of highway on top of hill. Oldest marked grave: Sarah
Caldwell, November 25, 1837. Deaton Cemetery is the site of burial of Honorable Charles Caldwell, who introduced a bill
in the Territorial Legislature creating Saline County, which was portions of Pulaski and Hot Spring Counties.

On August 2, 1975 Mrs. W. Bernard Barber surveyed the cemetery, and reported that there were many, many unmarked      
graves throughout the entire cemetery. It was also distressing to see the apparent disregard for the sanctity of the      
area, tombstones were piled in a large pile in the middle of the cemetery, and an area appeared to have been graded 
and plowed.

      the numeral in Dec 9 remains, but it look to be more the top of a 9 than 
      the top of an 8, since the top of an 8 is smaller.]
