Nancy's Lawrence County Corner

NEW HOPE CEMETERY
Lawrence County, Arkansas


Location: Between Powhatan and Smithville on Highway 117. The cemetery is located near the New Hope Baptist Church. A cousin, Jeri Helms Fultz, has worked hard to include a history of New Hope Baptist Church. Many of the families that are a part of the church history are also families that are buried in this cemetery.

Latitude: 36.083N -- Longitude -91.234W -- Map

There are at least 100 unmarked graves. Either the individual never did have a marker or their marker was lost because of age or vandalism.

I have been including deaths listed in the Times Dispatch Newspaper from Walnut Ridge. In some cases the birth date was not given. In those cases I listed "no date" as a birth date. This does not mean that a birth is not included on their monument.
