Salus, Johnson County, Arkansas

"Gone But Not Forgotten"

Transcribed April 12, 2003, by Robert & Rosa Cline


This cemetery is located on the county lines of Johnson and Newton, and is called by two different names. It just depends on "who you talk with" and "what county they refer to the cemetery in" as to what the cemetery is called. Either Salus Cemetery in Johnson County, OR Pine Grove Cemetery in Newton County. There are about 12 unmarked graves here.

Driving Directions: From Hwy 21 driving toward Clarksville, Going from Fallsville to the Johnson/Newton County line, once you get to the county line, County Road NE 316 will be off to your left, (right on the county line). You will drive about 1/2 of a mile and the cemetery fence will be on your right, but you will have to park on the left and walk up to the fence and the graves will be located behind the fence and a small hill. You can't see the stones from the dirt road.

I am typing up this transcription just as it is on the stones and under the transcriptions I will put any additonal information known in ( ) any of this additional information take only as a guideline to go by. It is from research or people contacting me, so use only as a guideline in your own research as I have no way of knowing if it is 100% correct or not. I am taking headstone photos of each stone out there so I do have those if anyone would like a scanned version, also I have obits for some of the people listed below, if anyone would like to have a copy...and sometimes there are pictures of the people to go with the obit...if anyone would like to contact me for a copy. Also if you don't find the information on this transcription look at for the person listed and there may be more information there for them. I am trying to download headstone photos to that site as well.
