Adkisson Cemetery

The White County Historical Society listed this cemetery for the first time February 15, 1976, after it was visited by Cloie and Leister Presley and Linda Rowe. They listed 49 names and reported seeing "many old rocks, probably 40 to 50."

WCHS member Leroy Blair and his wife Ellen updated the list on February 28, 2002. He prepared the following report:

"This old cemetery is located on the White-Faulkner county line near Mt. Vernon and El Paso. To get to the cemetery from El Paso, take Highway 5 north to John Fowlkes Road. Turn left and go about a mile and a half to Cemetery Road. Turn right and go about a mile to the Oliver Cemetery. Just before you get to Oliver, turn left and go about a quarter-mile to a T intersection, which is probably Bristol Road. Turn left and look for the cemetery on the right about 100 yards from the intersection.

"It is fenced and very clean. There is a huge oak tree that is obviously very old. This cemetery has a burial recorded in 1846 - just six years after the oldest recorded burial in White County. I found 38 sets of rocks or concrete blocks set in the ground with no markings on them."
