GOODHOPE  PRIMITIVE  BAPTIST  CEMETERY

Est. ca 1863

 

Located along Hwy. 275 south of Strong, Arkansas, in Union County,

Arkansas, about one mile from the Louisiana State line. There is frequent

confusion about this cemetery/church and it's location, especially, by old timers.

Many of the old timers who were born & or resided in the community of

Oakland, Union Parish, Louisiana, believed that this cemetery was located

in Union Parish, Louisiana.

Looking at old topographical maps and road maps, it is very clear that

the cemetery was about 7-8 miles south of the community of Strong and

about 1 mile north of the Arkansas / Louisiana State lines. 

The community of Oakland is approximately 1-2 miles south of the state lines.

I have personally been to this cemetery several times & no where do

you see a Louisiana state line sign.  One of these days, maybe I

will drive on down to Oakland to just check the mileage from

the church to Oakland.  No doubt, it may have been thought

to be in Louisiana at one time, before more accurate surveys

& mapping was done for establishing state boundaries.

Some of the following information was copied from a book of cemetery

 surveys, compiled of Union County cemeteries, about 1970, by Juanita

Buckley Hancock. The title is “Cemetery and Bible Records of Union

County, Arkansas,”  Pages 125 - 131.  These books are found in the

Barton Library of El Dorado.

Updates for this cemetery: April 10, 2004/ June 2009/ last survey May 2011 ~

many of the old timers who were born or resided in the community of Oakland attended

this church, etc…….and the community of Oakland sits approximately 1-2 miles
