    • Anyone can come to this place I myself have been to this place and there is a trail that goes around it that is where the gates are I live in Hartman Arkansas about 3 miles away from this place.

    • I’m not trying to be rude but you might be blind because my grandpa died back in 2014 and when we went over there to go see him. His berried behind were people make dog foods. Every time we go see him we look around the symmetry to see any thing that’s weird and their are gates so like I said I’m not trying to be rude.

    • Drove on 164 to get to i-40 & discovered this little gem of a cemetery . Olde grave stones dating to early 1800’s. Many toppled over and fractured, unfortunately. Found one of a very young child, but would need to research anything relating to headless women, crime cases. Not sure if any records proving this event in newspapers. ..

  2. This cemetery was across the road from my uncle farm, his name was Heartsill McSwain and knew the cemetery wqas there but it had over grown. He had it cleaned and mowed. Many a night we would walk there and I refused to enter it as I always heard walking and never saw anyone, it could have been the many trees blowing in the wind. But rather scary at night. He sold the farm many years ago and not sure who keeps it clean

  3. I was told growing up in the area that back in the old days during a poker game a man was losing badly and put his bride in to stay in the game hoping his luck would change. He lost the hand and ended up chopping his wife’s head off to keep her from going to the winner.

    Hi, I don’t know if this is the place or not. Back in 1983 I lived in Clarksville Ark. and was told a story about a haunted cemetery where a woman ghost guarded the graves. According to the person who told me the story, there was a trail around the Cemetery that led to a gate. There was supposed to be a bridge that led up to the cemetery that was also haunted. I never was able to make it there to see the cemetery myself, but I am making plans to soon visit Clarksville again. I would love to finally see this cemetery. Thank you for any feedback.
