Arkansas Cemeteries

 

Walnut Grove Cemetery

(Sometimes known as Boxley Cemetery)

Boxley, Newton County, AR

"Gone but not forgotten"

Transcribed by Robert & Rosa Cline

 

 

This cemetery is located about five miles from the Madison county line.

 

If you are coming from Madison county, you stay on Highway 21 and go into Newton County and follow that highway around the sharp corner. If you turn left you will go to Lost Valley and Compton, so stay on the highway and go about another mile, and you will see a sign for Boxley Baptist Chruch with several mailboxes. Turn right onto the drive/street and the cemetery is right there. There is the old Boxley Church still standing, the new church building and the pastor's house there beside the cemetery.

Coming from Russellville or Swain area, you will follow highway 21 until you get to Edwards Junction. You will turn on highway 21 as if you were going to Mossville. Follow the highway through Mossville, and just a few miles farther you will see the sign for the church. You will turn left onto the drive/street for the cemetery.

There are about 20-25 graves that are unmarked or marked only with a rock. (In a transcription done in 1986, they made a note of about 75 or so, but most of those were foot markers for graves out there.) This transcription shows exactly what was on the stone. If I know extra information about that certain person under the transcription, I will put the information I know in ( ). So anything in ( ) is something I added, not something on the stone.

If anyone has any obits or knows anything more about any of these people, feel free to e-mail us. We are trying to gather as many obits as we can, and make these people as "real" as possible, so even though they lived 100 or more years ago, they truly will be "gone but not forgotten".

I've been told by Judy Tate that there are 3 graves outside of the cemetery. They were once "marked" by a large Chiqipen tree and was by a fence row,..but that was many years ago.... these are those three. These names and dates came from a family Bible:

Polly Ann Casey daughter of Miles H. and Rachel Edgmon Casey, born 1862 she was a child when she died.

Rachel Rebecca Casey, daughter of Braxton and Polly Casey Edgmon, she was the wife of Miles H. Casey. She was born March 26, 1834 and died Jan. 17, 1863

Braxton Edgemon the son of Samuel Deatherage and Sally Percy Edgmon. He was born March 20, 1813 and died Sept. 6, 1864. He was killed by bushwackers.
