(aka Seitz Cemetery)
Dry Fork, Carroll County, Arkansas
Submitted April 25, 2003, by Deana Smith
This cemetery is on private land now owned by Harold Logan. It is located off of 412 highway at Dry Fork. You can see it on a far hill with a white fence around it. The property owners would like to be notified if you go up there. I am posting to you a picture of the cemetery taken prior to our mowing yesterday. When we started cleaning this, NO grave stones were visible. We couldn't even see each other. 6 of us cleaned it in 2000. I am also sending a photo of the house built by Britain Smith who homesteaded it in 1834, and built the house in 1835. No nails were used.
