Peeler Bend Cemetery

This is a rather small cemetery (very well maintained) with many unmarked graves.

Directions: Going west on I-30, take Exit 116, to State Road 46, turn right on Peeler Bend Road. Going east on I-30, take Exit 114, bear left (north) onto US-67, continue north on SR-46, turn left on Peeler Bend Road. It is on the right side of the road across from New Prospect Missionary Baptist Church at 3223 Peeler Bend Road, Benton, Arkansas.   (Google map shows it as Hutcheson Road, but it is really Peeler Bend.)

The Peeler Bend area was named after James Wilson Peeler who is buried in this cemetery. He was one of the first settlers in this part of Saline County and my great-grandfather.
