ALDRIDGE/ALDRICH CEMETERY

Aldridge Road and Amaryllis Place
Pearcy, Garland County, Arkansas

GPS coordinates:  Latitude: 34.42627 Longitude: -93.20651

Take 70 West Highway west of Hot Springs, Arkansas.  Just before you reach the Lake Hamilton School, turn left on Aldridge Road.  Cemetery is located at the end of road.  A sign at the entrance of this cemetery says “Aldridge Cemetery."  The land for the cemetery was donated by A. C. and Sarah Aldrich in 1892.   (Garland Co., AR Deed Record Book 14, pg. 523.)  In the cemetery readings of 1968, by Inez Cline and Bobbie Jones McLane the cemetery is listed also as ALDRICH.  I wish to thank Mary Johnson of Abilene, Texas, for information of the land record and clarification of the name of this cemetery.  Additional information noted under the tombstone reading , is taken from funeral home records, and marriage records.  Errors may be found in those documentations, please take this into consideration.  [Most marker photographs are on findagrave.com]
