GREEN NEWTON FAMILY CEMETERY
Est. ca 1857
Cemetery located southeast of El Dorado, on
private property in heavy woods. Go east on
Hwy. 82 (aka Strong Hwy.) to Hillsboro Road;
then go south on Hillsboro Road, going toward the
Louisiana state line, for several miles.
The cemetery is located east of the road, in the woods.
I have no further directions or approximate mileage to give.
This cemetery is on private land.
**What is now named Hillsboro Road, was the old
County road, 32; after intersecting with Hibanks Road,
which veers to the west as County Road 32,
continuing south from this intersection,
Hillsboro Rd. (32) became County Road 152.
It continues on due south as County R0ad 152,
now Hillsboro Road all the way to the Louisiana state line.
Hibanks Road runs south off of Hwy. 82 east. In earlier times it
was known as County Road 27, eventually becoming County Road 32.
I have been told by many descendants of this family that this
old cemetery has dwindled to only about a dozen identifiable
tombstones. It was once enclosed by a wrought iron fence.
In 2012, I was told that the wrought iron fence had
disappeared bit by bit, until it was all gone.
Originally Green Newton once had a huge obelisk tombstone
but many years ago someone came and stole the large obelisk,
leaving only the base.
To date, no one knows what became of it.
Vandals have struck several times, leaving behind evidence
of digging and the damaging of other tombstones.
If you are a descendant of this cemetery and would like to
know more, you might wish to contact Ronnie & Carol Tillman
at email@example.com. Ronnie has several relatives, ancestors
buried here & has lived in the area all his life.
