White Church Cemetery - Black Section

This cemetery is located at the same location as the white section. A fence divides the two sections. The earlier record states that it was also known as Walter
Driving directions: Go north off Hwy. 4 (now Hwy. 278) on County Rd. No. 46 (just west of the Nevada-Ouachita county line) for about three miles. The cemetery will be on your right just before an intersection in which the road makes a sharp curve to the left.
