African American cemetaries? by George Wise (wise_nospam@comcast.net) on 2004-01-11 1:47 p.m.

Does anyone have information on which cemetaries were considered African-American cemetaries around the 1840-1900 timeframe?

Thanks

      African-American Cemeteries in Nevada County Arkansas by Derek Keith Rodgers, Sr. (BJENE701@peoplepc.com) on 2005-06-26 9:54 p.m.

Hello--

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'm researching the Henry and Sally (Currie) Loudermilk family...any connection to your line??

      Black Cemeteries by juanita hopson (juanitahopson@yahoo.com) on 2005-07-09 11:23 a.m.

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.

My husbands mother was a Jackson before marriage, she married Oscar Hopson, the Dempseys also married into the Hopson family. Are you related? If so lets talk.

            Read the description of the cemeteries and they will tell you if they are Black or not by Betty Gary (dverti5@sbcglobal.net) on 2007-06-19 10:33 p.m.

If you read the description on the cemetery list you will find the one that are Black. Union Grove and Sweet Home are Black and a part of DeAnn cemetery is Black
