Clark County, Arkansas
Photos & Transcription Submitted November 2, 2005,by Shirley & Don Cagle
 
Section 19, Township 9 South, Range 21 West
The Cemetery is located 6 1/4 miles south of Okolona on Highway 51.
The sign in the picture says Rome Cemetery, which is what Iíve always known it by.
It is Old Rome Cemetery. The other Rome Cemetery on the same road is a black cemetery.
There are many many graves marked with rocks. There are many metal markers where the info is gone.
There are also 2 wooden headstones. The cemetery is fenced and maintained.
