African-American Cemeteries in Nevada County Arkansas

I know that Providence Azor Cemetery in Bodcaw and Clevet Springs cemeteries are African-Americans. A majority of my ancestors are buried in them; with Azor being the main one through Hicks Funeral Home. Frederick Loudermilk (I believe) is the care taker of the Azor Cemetery.

I know of one, it is in the community of Boughton, Ar. The name is Washington Hill Cemetery it is off hwy 67 turning left onto Rd #220 going north about 1.5 miles, the cemetery is on the left.
The oldest grave there that can be read is dated 1894. We believe there are some older but parts are so overgrown that it is impossible to get in thare and look.
This cemetery is affiliated with The Macedonia Baptist Church in Boughton.
There are others that are also affiliated with Black Churches in the Nevada co area.

I am a direct descendant of the Frank H. Dempsey family of Nevada and Hempstead county Arkansas.
But, I do not know my great grandfather's name, could be John or James Dempsey.
Do you have any information on this family you would like to share.
I think my grandfather was born 1876-1883 . He married Mary B. Fincher.
I will await your reply.

African American cemetaries?
by lyndia (jprof) on 2011-09-29 8:29 a.m.|
never heard of the cemeteries listed. in the area aroung prescott most blacks are buried at washington hill in boughton, snell in emmet, deann in prescott, craven has a few-most unmarked. then there is green hill and antioch near blevins and the name of the one in okolona escapes me. deann has 3 sections-the old/early, then the segregated section where blacks are buried and still are if you already have a lot and the "new" section that is intergrated. There's another around Laneburg, but I know little about lower nevada county
