FRIENDSHIP CEMETERY
Scott County, Arkansas

This cemetery is located southeast of Waldron on Highway 250. It is on the left side of the road, approximately 7 miles from the Hwy 71B/State Highway 250 junction, going east. Turn left just past the signpost and follow the road to the left to the cemetery at the top of the hill

The tombstones were copied and a digital photograph was made of each stone 6-7-8 August 2003 by Delaine Edwards with the help of my husband. Anyone wishing a copy of the photograph of their ancestor's tombstone may contact me and I'll be glad to send it via Email. Please put "Friendship Cemetery Photos" in the subject line of your message.

Notes: *Elijah Wagner's stone is propped against a tree near the entrance to the cemetery & may have been taken down when a double stone was installed with Polly.

*Wylie Barton Grubbs' funeral home marker lists only his surname and the dates of his birth and death. His obituary gives his first and middle names and his date of death as 14 Apr 2003.

The following four stones were listed in a 1993 survey of this cemetery but we were unable to locate them. We found several funeral home markers that are now illegible and may mark these graves. Another possiblity is that we may have simply overlooked them. There are at least 40 graves marked with fieldstones.
