This cemetery is located about 17 miles southwest of El Dorado, in the Three Creeks and Salem Road area.

This information extracted from earlier surveys and the latest done in March 2001 by Ralph O. Weldon and Will Walls.

The cemetery has been badly vandalized according to their canvass.

Update and pictures April 16, 2006, Janice Holzer.

 

This cemetery is in bad condition. It is surrounded by a chain link fence, but many tombstones are broken, turned over & or have become unreadable.

It does not appear to have been mowed or debris from large oak tree picked up in a long time.

The Cenotaph erected for Jenkins H. Welch & Penelope Carroll Welch appears to be the only new item in the cemetery since the 2001 canvass.

Since my last update to this cemetery, I was informed of clean up work that was accomplished at the cemetery.  (June 2009)
