NEW HOPE CEMETERY AT LOST CORNER
Copied by James and Alta Ballard and C. L. and Lina Boyd in 1996.
Submitted by Lina Boyd I do have more info on some of these people.

From the Supermarket in Hector, go north on Highway 27 for 1.6 miles to the junction of White Oak Mountain Road. Turn right on this road and go northeast for 14.2 miles. Cemetery is on the left of the road. Approximatley 110 unmarked graves.

My directions are from the Pope County side of this cemetery. You will have to find directions from the Van Buren County side. It might be best to go to Highway 16 east of the junction of Highway 27 and down the road to it.
