New Floyd Cemetery

Floyd, Arkansas

This cemetery is located on El Paso Road approximately one-fourth mile from the intersection of Highways 305 and 31. It is north of the Floyd ballpark. The first listed burial was in 1989. Wayne Benton (501 796-2482) is the cemetery caretaker. This cemetery was surveyed on May 7, 2000, by Shelly and Wyatt Keech and Jerry and Teddy Wyatt for the White County Historical Society. It was updated May 14, 2001, and in late 2002 by Society member Leroy Blair. After visiting the site with his wife Ellen, Blair reported "This is a pretty cemetery located on a sloping hill. It has several concrete statues scattered over it, also several concrete birdbaths. It is fenced and very clean, approximately three acres in size."
