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. (INVALID-BJENE701@peoplepc.com-2016-07-25 OPTIN) 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.

Hello,

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.

            Washington Hill Cemetery by Martha Ann Murphy-Pitts (mrthpitt@pacbell.net) on 2006-03-06 9:24 p.m.

Hello, My Dad and his family are buried there. I also have a brother and cousins living in Prescott. I will be visiting Prescott hopefully this year 2006.

            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

      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
