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.
