Take Highway #53 out of Gurdon, Arkansas. Turn left onto Dobyville Road. On Dobyville Hill, turn left. Cemetery is on the north side of the road, behind the church.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Piney Ridge Church, which is an African American church. It is not known when this cemetery was established, but judging from the stones, it was in the early 1900s. There are a couple burials from the 1800s.

This transcription was obtained from the Clark County Arkansas Cemetery Record Book, published by the Committee for Extension Homemakers Council, Arkadelphia, Arkansas in 1983. Compiled by Mrs. Manuel Phifer and Mrs. Dave Carter.
