Buckheiser Cemetery

Denmark, Arkansas

This cemetery was recorded February 26, 2001, by Leroy Blair of the White County Historical Society. He and his wife Ellen were following up on information obtained by two other Society members, president Bill Leach and author Scott Akridge. Blair provided the following directions to reach the site: "From Denmark take Highway 167 north about two miles to Scoggins Road and turn right. Go about a mile to Jackson County road #6 and turn left. The cemetery is located about one-tenth of a mile up road #6 on the left about 100 yards, back in a pasture field in a grove of trees. The stone can be seen under the trees. I was welcomed to the cemetery by about 100 hungry young cattle."

Blair found only one grave that was marked with a stone:

Buckheiser, Emma Catherine born January 24, 1875 died (illegible)

"There are several graves marked by rocks and also several depressions that are probably graves with no markings. Thee are a lot of rocks piled by the grave of Emma Catherine Buckheiser. I was told by a local resident that these were stones that had been removed from other graves."
