In Berryville from the intersection of Business Highway 7 (East Main
St.) and Highway 340, go east on East Main St. for 3 blocks. The cemetery
is near the driveway next to the church on the north side of the road.
A church cemetery that was started in 1850. When I was visiting the cemetery, an elderly gentleman came up to me and explained that the remains are in front of the church while the headstones are on the east side near the driveway.
He also said that at one time there were about 200 burials in this church cemetery. During the years, the headstones slowly disappeared. The gentleman was telling me that he and his friends used the headstones as bases when they played baseball.
What I read is all that remains of the headstones that represent the cemetery. I walked this cemetery on May 25 2003.
