Bethsaida Cemetery
Amity, Clark County, Arkansas

Lat: 34° 13' 05"N, Lon: 93° 25' 56"W

Contributed by Richard Rodgers, Jul 14, 2000, last edited Sep 18, 2010 [rerodgers@windstream.net]. Total records = 133.

From Amity, Arkansas take S. Main Street which will turn into Center Ridge Road. Go 2.9 miles to fork in road, turn left and go 1.5 miles to a dirt road. Turn right and go .7 to Watt Road and go .04 miles to the cemetery.

Bethsaida Cemetery has approximately 235 graves, of which about 102 of them are marked only with stones with no writing on them. It is laid out in about 28 rows.

When I first read this cemetery it was only from the headstones. Since that time I have information from Vivian Garner, who has kept records and done research on this cemetery for many years.

Additional names have been added from Vivian's records which are identified by an asterisk * following the entry. These listings have only a marker with no name or are in unmarked graves.

I complied this transcription on Jul 08, 2000.
