Scott County, Arkansas

Going South from Waldron on Highway 71, turn right on Highway 80 West (Middle Winfield Road) and go about 3 miles to Lower Winfield Road and turn left. Go about a half mile and turn right on Nelson Loop. The cemetery is about ½ to ¾ mile on the right in a field. This cemetery appears to be long abandoned. It has a good barbed wire fence around it but the briers and undergrowth make it difficult to survey or photograph. Digital photographs were made of the tombstones on 2 March 2004 by Delaine & Bob Edwards. If you would like a copy of the photograph of your ancestor's tombstone, please contact Delaine Edwards and it will be sent via E-mail. Please put "Smith Cemetery Photo" as the subject of your message.

We were unable to locate the following tombstones listed in a 1984 survey of this cemetery. The cemetery is grown up with briers and we may simply have missed finding them:
Denton, Major Joel, 30 May 1785-27 Jan 1863 (His tombstone is at Oliver Cemetery)
Smith, Elizabeth Ann, 1 May 1830-4 Feb 1882, W/o Dr. James H.
Smith, Mary Eliza, 9 Nov 1871-29 Jul 1872
Smith, Thomas Newton, 4 Oct 1866-9 Aug 1872, S/o Geo. W. & Eliza
Whitlock, Obadiah W., 18 Oct 1803-18 Sep 1875 (Mary Jane’s stone is off its base and on the ground; his inscription may be on the back side of it – we were unable to turn her stone over to check due to the undergrowth surrounding it.)
