Mendenhall Cemetery

Mendenhall was once a community just inside Nevada County on Hwy 278 (formerly Hwy. 4). I had heard of a Mendenhall cemetery, but could not find any information about where it was located. Finally, someone told me that they once remembered a few graves on the side of Hwy. 4 just west of the old Mendenhall place. I could not find any markers, so I stopped at the old Mendenhall place where some younger members of the family lived. They told me that a baby was buried there, but the grave had to be moved when the highway was constructed. They said they had the monument out behind the house and asked if I would like to see it. There under a bush was the marker.
Driving directions: The old burial spot was about 1/2 mile west of the Nevada-Ouachita county line on the south side of the highway. There is no evidence of a cemetery at this time.
