This cemetery was once located between Earle and Parkin, at the Cross-Crittenden County line, in what was known as old “Organ Grove”. The Isabel family lived on a 40 acre farm lying in the Smithdale community, Tyronza Township of Cross County.


To access this area, travel south on a dirt road, towards the railroad track, between Parkin and Shannonville.

The graves have since been plowed over to make way for farming operations.
