BARNES CEMETERY
SHARP COUNTY, ARKANSAS

My mother and I went to the Sharp County Extension Office and got a copy of the cemetery records they had on file. These are older records and not up to date, but a partial listing is better than none. There are several, so it'll take me some time to put them in word format and send them, but I'll do then as soon as I can. There's also one that is not on their list, but we plan on surveying it also. I'm doing the smallest ones first. Gloria L.

I would like to thank Gloria and her mother for their work in collecting and typing this information.

These cemetery records are the original ones that I found at the County Extension Office in Ash Flat, Sharp Co., Ar.. I have added names and dates that I have found in my research of the Medlock and related families.  Betty Roach, Glendale, Arizona 10-1997. (This note was at the end of the cemetery listing.)

The following information is from records on file at the Sharp County Extension Office in Ash Flat, Ar.  This cemetery is located in Poughkeepsie, Ar.  From Evening Shade, go east on Hwy. 56 about 4 or 5 miles and then make a left and go about 2 miles to the Strawberry River. Cross the low water bridge and go another ½ to ¾ mile.
