Just to the right edge of photo you can see graves located outside the fenced area. There are three Steadman graves, in a row, back along the edge of woods & just out from the Northeast corner of the cemetery.
Outside fenced area are the three Steadman graves. The three Steadman graves are visible and farther along the tree line is another lone grave, belonging to FannieF. Jennings Hays (1893-1925) Children’s names are listed on back side. Steadman graves outside fenced area of Hicks Family Cemetery.
There is another cemetery (newer) across the road from the African American cemetery. It may be an extension of that cemetery. Hwy. 172. A corner of the African American Cemetery is visible just behind the Hicks Family Cemetery and the newer cemetery is visable across the road.

(This grave & marker east of the fenced in cemetery about 100 feet.)
*Adjoining this fenced in area on the west side is another fenced in cemetery area which is a black cemetery. Noted one burial GEORGE MURPHY 8-16-1869 to 1-3-1931.
Directly south across Hwy. 172, from this cemetery, is about 5 acres chain link fencing of a newer section of cemetery. Just inside the double gates is the grave of a GOODWIN. Several new graves along the back side of cemetery...a few names noted,
GOODWIN, FULLER, MODICA to mention a few I could see from entrance. I believe this is another black section of cemetery?
**Many unmarked graves. Many of Smackover's early settlers are buried here.
