Rogers Cemetery

This cemetery is in a very remote area. It is a small cemetery surrounded by an old fence. The timber around it was cut several years ago and the land is growing up in brush, briars, and young pine trees.
Driving directions: If you are not familiar with this area of the county, I would advise getting someone to go with you. The area is very isolated and the roads are bad in wet weather. The road leading to the cemetery is a logging road about 2 1/2 miles from the Nevada-Ouachita county line on County Road No. 179 (commonly called Frogshack Road). Turn right on to the logging road and travel northeast for about 1/2 mile. You will have crossed a small gas line which is hard to see. Just after the road turns straight east, turn left on to another dimmer logging road and travel north about 3/4ths of a mile. After crossing a large gas line, a logging road leads to the right, but you should not take it. The road you are on will pass through the cut over area and gradually get dimmer. About 1/4 mile past the gas line a trail will lead off to the right. Park and walk from here to the cemetery. A large pine tree stands near the cemetery and a large hardwood tree is further east.
