This cemetery is located near the old Janeway Lumber Camp. Before other
lumber companies destroyed it there had been about 65 known graves, you
can find pieces of headstone in this area today and 3 remaining readable
stones. Take highway 5 to highway 9 out of Benton, go north on 9 until
you reach the Sulphur Springs Road on the left, the you will take the
second road on the right, cross Alum Fork on a low water slab bridge,
go to the crossroads at the top of the hill, these crossroads are 17 miles
from Hillcrest Grocery in Benton, you will take the left hand crossroad
up until you come to a split in the road and on the right hand split there
is a large water bar and you walk from here following a dim old road crossing
the water bar into the woods and if you don't watch for the remaining
stones you will walk right past them.
