From Newellton on hwy 65 turn west on hwy 4 about .8 miles to hwy 575 turn northwest 2 miles Newell cemetery is about 100 yd on west side of road. It is easily found as it has a large arch type monument at the road.
This cemetery is well kept. The entrance is marked with the cemetery name and all the names that are buried there. With a long lane lined with trees leading back to the cemetery. All the graves have been concreted over and the stone are set on top.
These records were compiled from the stones and the entrance monument at the cemetery, which I did on Mar 06, 2004.
