Pictured at left is the gravestone of Frederick S. Lancaster.  You can see on the stone by the color the small amount of stone that was above ground when we went looking for the marker.

The Round Bottom Cemetery is located off the Herpel Road on the river farm owned by Bill Lancaster.  There are approximately 25 total graves in the cemetery with only 5 marked for identification.  Several of the graves are known to belong to that of slaves brought into the area.  This old cemetery is now quite hidden from view as it has become overgrown and forgotten.  The graves of Amanda and William Lancaster have beautiful old stones and are surrounded by an old wire fence.  A huge old tree is growing between the two graves.  The following information was taken from the Stone County Arkansas Cemetery Records compiled by Freda Daum Massey.  This publication is out of print at the current time.
