Scott County, Arkansas

Go South from Waldron on U.S. Highway 71 approximately 7 miles. Just past Needmore turn left on State Highway 28 East and the cemetery is on the left about 1/10 of a mile. It is enclosed by a chainlink fence but has no sign with the cemetery name on it. The tombstones were copied and a digital photograph was made of each stone in September 2003 and updated in January 2015 by Bob, David and Delaine Edwards. 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 "Needmore Cemetery Photos" as the subject of your message.
