This cemetery is located about a mile east of White County Central School on the old Searcy-Batesville road. It was listed in 1965 by Cloie Presley of the White County Historical Society. She reported "estimated 25-35 fieldstone markers not identified."
The cemetery was badly overgrown and no longer being used when Leroy Blair of the Historical Society visited it August 25, 2000. Following is his report: "To get to this cemetery, take Highway 157 north from Judsonia to Edwards Road. About a quarter-mile south of White County Central School, turn right on Edwards Road, following it until it comes to a T intersection (unmarked road). Turn left and go about 200 yards to another T intersection (unmarked). Turn right on this road. (May need a four-wheel drive in wet weather.) Go about 200 yards. The cemetery is on the right. It is very hard to see because it is overgrown. There is an old fence around it but it has fallen down. I found 12 of the graves in the Presley list. There are a lot of unmarked graves. It is very hard to tell how many due to the overgrowth. I did not find the graves of Elizabeth Ellen Kearnes, Clara Eva Owens or Lee Owen."
