This Cleburne County cemetery, which is also known as Old Salem Cemetery, was listed for the White County Historical Society by Leroy Blair after he visited it with his wife Ellen on July 12, 2001. It is listed by the White County Society because many White County residents are buried here. Following is from his report: "To get to this cemetery from Wilburn, take Tyler Road. When you get to the end of the blacktop, go about a mile to a crossroad and turn left. (This is the same crossroad that goes to Decker Cemetery, only you turn right to go to Decker.) Go 1.4 miles to another side road and turn right. The cemetery is about a half-mile down this road, on the right side of the road. When we visited, it was in bad need of mowing, covered with weeds and small bushes. It appeared to have been very badly overgrown with trees and brush until someone cleared the area with a bulldozer, taking care not to disturb the graves. This is a large cemetery, covering maybe two acres or more. The graves are in four different sections about 100 feet apart. Due to the overgrowth, I probably missed a lot of graves and need to return when the leaves are off the weeds and bushes."
Blair found 23 graves marked only with rocks and no information on them. There was also one unmarked grave covered with slabs of rock.
