Location Information
Three-tenths of a mile South of the City limits of Mena turn off Highway 71, cross railroad track, take immediate road to South (Polk 733 ?); go to dead end (there is a gate here).  To the West about two hundred feet is the old home place for Spence White.
Section 24, Township 2 South, Range 31 West
Parcel # ?

Internments
About two hundred feet behind Spence White's old home place are three graves.
 
White, Marvin Middleton  = 1898-1963 - (son of Spencer White)
White, Matilda  - 8/11/1839-12/3/1919
White, Serrel  - 6/6/1833-10/31/1878
 
Southeast of Spencer White's home place on the Serral White homestead is a fenced area with the graves of Spencer's father and mother.  There is one tombstone with the following inscription:
 
White, Ninnie Delaney Rogers  - 1867-1946 - (wife of Spencer White)
White, Spencer Lee  - 1865-1946

 
There are four or five rocks, in this fenced area, which maybe grave markers, but since there are no other signs visible the graves could not be identified.

According to Spence White's daughter, Mrs. Belle White Hughes (Mrs. Richard Hughes) who lives near Mena, as of March 27, 1984, her father homesteaded the land which she and her husband now own.  Mrs. Belle Hughes remembers people gathering at their home to watch the first trains travel into Mena.

She does not know where the Whites originated.  But her mother's people whose last name was Rogers moved from Tennessee to Prescott, Arkansas in the middle 1800's.  When Belle's mother was seventeen she moved to Polk County to live with her two sisters, Sallie (Mrs. Lawrence Owens) and Leona (Mrs. Webb Hall).

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.
