Gilliam cemetery is one-quarter mile from the low water bridge near Gilliam Springs, down an old road which is impassable by car.  It lies to the right of the road a short distance and is surrounded by dense forest.  It is located on land that James H. Gilliam homesteaded before the Civil War and it consists of sixteen graves, eight of which have no names and dates.

James H. Gilliam's wife and daughter are buried here, and it is believed that most of the eight unnamed graves are members of the Gilliam family, also.

The first Williamson was buried here in 1870.  The land had been sold to Asa Williamson prior to this burial.

In 1970 some of the Gilliam heirs, who lived in Ashdown, Arkansas, owned forty acres of land where the cemetery is located.  This cemetery is also known as the Gilliam-Williamson Cemetery.

Please visit the Polk County Library.  There is a genealogy section at the library.  Or, check www.FindaGrave.com as the Polk County Genealogy Society (Mary L Broderick)  is attempting to put all of this information on the FindAGrave site along with the Markers for the Graves.  It is a massive undertaking.
