Thank you to Sherry for the information on this cemetery. She found it.

Unknown "Andrews" Cemetery lies on private land west of Walnut Grove and south west of Strawberry, approximately 1/8 mile west of the Dawson Cemetery, just off the field path in a clump of trees.

From the stop sign in Strawberry, drive west toward Cave City for 5.2 miles, and turn left onto the unmarked gravel road. Proceed south 2.7 miles to a gated field path. From the gate, the Dawson Cemetery is visible in a cluster of trees approximately 200 yards due west. The Andrews Cemetery is up the next hill, past the first ridge of rock and on to the next stand of trees on your right. There appear to be 20 or more graves in this cemetery, with only a couple marked with recently placed headstones.

Andrews, C. Jones born October 18*, 1840 in Orange County, NC, died March 21, 1909 in Sharp County, AR Sgt. 3rd Confederate Calvary. A biography of Calvin Jones Andrews can be found at

Andrews, Lizzie Bowers born May 6, 1844 in Orange County, NC died November 24, 1916 in Sharp County, AR. Wife of Calvin Jones Andrews.
