Decker Family Cemetery

Wilburn, Arkansas

This cemetery is located in Cleburne County, but this area was originally part of White County. Leroy Blair of the White County Historical Society prepared a report on this site after he first visited here on July 12, 2001. Following are his directions: “To reach the cemetery from Wilburn, take Tyler Road; when you get to the end of the blacktop go about a mile to Warren Mountain Road. Turn right and go a mile and one tenth [1.1 mile]. The road will split three different ways. Take the road to the right for about two-tenths of a mile. The cemetery is on the right. It covers about two acres and is fenced with a gate. It is very clean.” Blair visited the cemetery again on March 13, 2007, and updated the original list, adding rows (in parenthesis) beside the names, to make it easier to locate graves. DS – denotes double tombstone.
