Nancy's Lawrence County Corner


a.k.a. William M. Fortenberry Cemtery
Lawrence County, Arkansas

Location: About 1.2 miles south of the Strawberry River Bridge on Highway 25. The Cemetery is on a bluff overlooking the river on the east side.

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.
