Parker Cemetery

Submitted by Jack James

Located on land owned by Mr. Seaton on Highway 252 north of Ursula, Ar in a field.

This land was originally owned by William C. Parker, father of Nelson S. Parker. The man next door said that the area was once a large farm and the cemetery there held many of the slaves graves. He understands that many of the unnamed stone graves are theirs.
