Scott County, Arkansas

From Waldron go south on Highway 71 to Highway 248 West. Turn right and go 13.9 miles. The highway becomes Jones Creek Road where the state maintenance ends. The cemetery is on the right side of the road about 75 yards into the woods just this side of a bridge. The cemetery has long been abandoned and briers and brush have taken over. Most of the tombstones seem to be in good condition and there is a fence around the cemetery. Surveyed and photographed 21 April 2006 by Bob, Delaine & David 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 "Vise Cemetery Photo" as the subject of your message.
