CENTRE POINT CEMETERY 1866-1996

Union County, Arkansas

 

This cemetery is located northeast of Hwy. 82 West, on state Hwy. 335, on a curve next to a house. It appears the cemetery has been cleaned and considerable work done on it to make it accessible. It covers probably about an acre wooded lot. I am sure there are many more graves than the ones identified below with headstones.I surveyed this cemetery November 17, 2002 Janice Holzer Click Thumbnail photos below for larger pictures.

 

(1) Cemetery is located on a sharp curve on Wyatt Road, West of the city of El Dorado.  The sign gives dates 1866 to 1996.  White tombstones can be seen in the background.  Not shown, but to the right of photo edge is a large gate that can be opened & just beyond that is some sort of pumping apparatus or a power supply.  It is marked, but I did not note.  All the woods that were behind this cemetery and to the right of it have been clear cut for quite a distance since I was last there.

 

(2)  Mooty family is buried inside this fenced enclosure.  Directly behind this

fenced plot is a concrete "curbed" plot for the Goodwin family.

 

 

(3)  These graves pictured here outside the enclosed plots belong to

McGee's. 

 

(4)These graves outside the enclosed family plots are for McGee's, one

Wood, one Mellard, and one Long.  Not shown but recently added at the

back edge of cemetery near the McGee graves is a homemade metal

marker for HAYES, written in script, painted silver & welded on top of flat

metal plate.  No dates
