Arnott Family Cemetery
There are no markers at this old family plot, but according to the earlier records, it is located on the old Elbert Billingsley place. I searched this location and could find no evidence of a cemetery. The most likely place is in a grove of large oak trees directly behind the old house place. The location is the SE1/4 SE1/4 of Section 20, Township 10 South, Range 22 West.
Driving directions: From Prescott, go north toward Gurdon about 1.5 miles. Turn left on Rd. No. 37 and go two miles just across the interstate. There will be a road to the left into a pasture. Just past this road on your left is the old Elbert Billingsley place. The earlier record stated that the cemetery was three-sixteenths of a mile due west across a field.
