Scott County, Arkansas

From Waldron, go north on U.S. Highway 71 approximately 5 miles; turn right on Government Trail road and go about 6 miles. The cemetery is located on the left side of the road and is on National Forest land. This cemetery was surveyed and photographed by Shawn and Heather Epperson in January 2009.

Below is a photograph of the fenced in area of the cemetery.

Only one inscribed tombstone is found here, that of Civil War veteran, Henry D. Littreal, born October 1843 and died 9 May 1908. He was a Union soldier, serving as a private in Company F, 10th Regiment Tennessee Cavalry.

Henry D. Littreal married his first wife Elizabeth J. Holloway on 25 December 1867 in Lauderdale County, Alabama. He came to Scott County at some time between 1880 when he is listed on the Limestone County, Alabama census and 19 September 1898 when he homesteaded 160 acres in Scott County.

There appear to be two other graves in this cemetery, marked only with fieldstones. One is decorated with a small replica of a yellow school bus placed in front of the stone.

The second grave marked with only a fieldstone is pictured below.
