From Amity, Arkansas go .8 miles on Highway 8W (W. Thompson) to
W. Texas Street (turn left just before you get to the railroad tracks).
Take first road on right which is Nutt Road crossing railroad tracks,
follow Nutt Road for 2.2 miles (pavement will end at .8 miles).
Turn left onto Sly Town Road and go 1 mile. Turn right onto John
Ashley Road and go .9 mile. This is a one lane road and very rough.
You will have to cross a creek that has no bridge. Turn left at
sign that reads Sparks Cemetery. Go .2 miles to the top of the hill
and turn left onto a log road and go .4 of a mile and turn right.
This is an old cemetery but very well maintained even though
one must travel over some rough roads and backwoods to get to
