Located atop a hill in the forest in the southern part of Baxter County off County Road 108. Take CR 108 almost to the end, about 2 miles from the Martin Springs Schoolhouse. Just after crossing the second creek make a right and go up the hill. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is suggested. The cemetery is in a clearing on your right after you get to the top of the hill. There are only nine marked stones in this family cemetery.

(h/o Mollie B. Hurst)

 

A memorial stone was placed between William R. and his wife Mollie by some of their grandchildren. "Erected in 1997 in loving memory of our grandparents, William R. & Mollie B. Hurst. By: Elmo Hurst, William Hurst, Woodrow Hurst, Ruth Cox, Ruby Bearden, Baxter Hurst, Garland Hurst, Helen Chapman, Ophelia Davis, Homer Hurst, Jessie Brim, Nellie Inez Ferrante".

A little family history on the Hurst Family. Robert E. and William C. Hurst two sons of William R. Hurst came to the area, that later became Baxter County about 1868. It would appear William R. Hurst didn't arrive in the area until later, maybe as late as 1879. In the 1880 census he is listed in the house of Joseph and Julia A. Spragins as father-in-law age 63. Molly Hurst was not listed in 1880 census. Arkansas Death Record Index shows Mollie B. Hurst died 7/1/1927 in Baxter County.

There's a sunken place between Alonzo and Clara. Another at the foot of Alonzo next to Lillian. Usually these low spots in the old cemeteries mean an unmarked grave.
