Mt. Moriah No. 1 Cemetery - Black

A small black cemetery in east Nevada Co. near White Oak Lake. Very difficult to find. Cemetery has now moved to another location further north (see Mt. Moriah No. 2). For information about the location of this cemetery, contact me or employees of the Arkansas Forestry Commission. Evidence of about 25 graves here.
Driving directions: From Upper White Oak Lake, go west toward Bluff City. In the sharp curve just before reaching Holleman Cemetery, turn left (go straight) on a dirt road. Take the first graded forest road to the left and go several miles. You will probably need a guide to find this cemetery and will probably need a four-wheeler.
