Vision Realty in Mena, Arkansas

Location Information
On top of Rich Mountain, northwest of where the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge now stands. (State Highway 88 West from Mena)
Section 10, Township 1 South, Range 32 West
Not on the Polk County Tax Roll

 
There are twenty three graves in this cemetery but only one has a tombstone.  The others are marked with native stones.

Although no one remembers the name or dates of the first burial, some think it may have been the small Wilkerson girl.  There was at least one grave and a church-school building on this one acre plot when A. Y Hays and M. M. Triplett deeded it for a church-school and cemetery in September of 1890.

The land is part of the land acquired in the original patent by James L. Witherspoon.  The cemetery is in the extreme Southeast quarter of the Northeast quarter of Section 10, Township 1 South, Range 32 West, on the slope of the mountain just below the crest.

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.
