Bolden-Yarbrough (Black)

This old abandoned cemetery is located on the south line of the SE 1/4 SE 1/4 of Section 26, Township 14 South, Range 20 West. I was told that this was a black cemetery and that a church once stood here, but it was later moved further southeast into Ouachita County. The cemetery is in the woods about 200 feet off County Road 179, commonly called Frogshack Road.
Driving directions: Since this cemetery is difficult to find, I will just say it is about 2 1/2 miles from the Nevada-Ouachita county line on Rd. 179, commonly called Frogshack Rd. A logging road will leave this road to the east. At this time a yellow painted property line runs east from the county road. The cemetery is about 200 feet from the road. A large oak tree and smaller pine trees stand near the graves. Since this is a very isolated area with many oil field roads, it would be wise to get someone to take you to this cemetery if you are not familiar with this area of the county.
