WESLEY  CHAPEL METHODIST CHURCH CEMETERY

 

Est. 1853


 

 

Union Co., AR   Located about 5 miles east of El Dorado, on Old Cedar Tree Rd., North side of Hwy 63 (aka East Main or Moro Bay hwy., old Hwy.15); My first visit to this cemetery found it so overgrown  that I had to crawl thru the bushes, grass, weeds. My 2nd  visit October 2001, found the cemetery cleaned and many of the tombstones up-righted.   Updated & made corrections, December 2007; included various burials that were listed on old surveys (prior to mine in 2001), which in most cases the tombstones are now either unreadable or have disappeared completely.

 

Please read at the end of this list, if you are interested in helping to maintain this cemetery & or seeking more info about it. Recently, in 2012, I have been advised by a descendant of African American

slaves, that several of these slaves & their descendants are buried here. I have noted the individuals

that have been brought to my attention. Updated from a new survey/canvass done in Oct 2011.

*In February 2012, I was contacted by RoseMary Lee,

an African American descendant of  Hays King (1966-1969),

Mattie Stamps King (1881-1960), Jim King  (1872-1963) who are buried

at Wesley Chapel Cemetery. Her great grandmother, Drucilla Silla King

Jones was born a slave (1852 to 1940).  She was the daughter of Washington

"Watt" and Nettie King.

*Drucilla and her grandson, Jesse Wade are both buried at Wesley Chapel

in un-marked graves.  They are believed to have been owned by the

John C. King family.  Rosemary31201_988@msn.com.
