Contributed by Carollyn Guidry, Jan 10, 2001, last edited Nov 08, 2004 [cmg239@aol.com] Total records = 266.

North of Van Buren on Highway 59 and North of Figure Five where Hwy 220 West meets 59 on the west, the cemetery is on the east side of Hwy 59. Decoration Day is the fourth Sunday in May.

Many years ago William Pleasant Bassham gave five acres of land as a burying place for the people of the area, with the stipulation that there would never be any charge made to anyone for a burial plot. His farm surrounded the cemetery. The first person buried there was Sarah Woolsey and it is reported that her father originally owned the property. This record of those buried there has been prepared by Carollyn Bassham Guidry, great granddaughter of Wm. Pleasant Bassham and is a work in progress. The work is not complete but all the old graves are listed. This will be updated from time to time with new listings. All listings from 'History In Headstones' are included, as well as any new burials between 1987 through 1999.
