Shiloh Cemetery

Bald Knob, Arkansas

This cemetery had never been recorded when it was visited by Leroy Blair of the White County Historical Society November 29, 2000. He said he reached it from Bald Knob by taking Highway 367 south to Conways Road, turned right and continued about a half-mile to the Conway Wilson residence at 263 Conways Road. The cemetery is located on the left just past the Wilson home. "It is back in the woods at the curve that turns right," Blair reported. "This is a very old cemetery, I could find only one stone with marking on it.

Lewis, Richard father of R. Boswell Lewis born November 13, 1824 died September 4, ??

Blair said he found 47 depressions running east/west which were probably graves. "Mr. Wilson said when he bought the land in the 1950s there were graves marked with rocks but only one with writing and it had been missing for years. I guess that is the one I found. It was lying flat on the ground covered with leaves and was broken. The photo is of this stone. Mr. Wilson said he believed some of the Collison family was buried here. This cemetery is in very bad condition."
