White Church Cemetery - White Section

This cemetery is located in the SW1/4 SW1/4 of Section 13, Township 13 South, Range 20 West. It has black and white sections separated by a fence. The cemetery is well maintained, even though it is located in a somewhat isolated part of the county.
Driving directions: Go north off Hwy. 278 (formerly Hwy. 4) on 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 main road makes a sharp curve to the left. There are no families living in this area at this time.

Posted by Sandra F. Puckett (sandrapuckett28@yahoo.com) (Brazoria) on 2006-06-14
I am asking for help and or any information about the Hays families in Nevada Co. There is a "Nancy Hays" buried in the White Church, sometimes called, "the Carolina Church". I visited this Cemetery on June 8, 2006, looking for Berry and Nancy Hay Beard's graves. She was born in SC and lived in the Woodlawn Community. There had been a bouquet of silk white roses punched into the ground by the old headstone. I had a hard time reading the dates of birth and death. Earlier recording said that it was hard to read but that an inscription was thought to read,"Wife of Henry" I wonder if it might have said "Wife of Berry". Does anyone know anything about this grave or any Hays buried in the White Cemetery? The stone had eroded away taking almost the faint date of death. It did not bear the inscription of "Wife of Henry" (or Berry) any longer. Please respond to this inquiry if anyone knows anything about any family of Hay or Hays. Thank you so much!
