Pounders Cemetery

 

This is a very old cemetery located on the Albert Rogers farm. Take Highway 4 west out of McGehee. Before crossing the bayou bridge, turn right and drive two miles along the bayou road. The cemetery is inside a pasture to the left of the road and on the bayou bank. It can be recognized by the many cedar trees and a huge magnolia tree. Most of the stones are down and part have caved into the bayou. A black walnut stump marks the spot where the old Warrick Chapel once stood. This was used as a church gathering place for people from miles around.
