HEBRON CEMETERY

FORREST CITY ~ ST. FRANCIS COUNTY ~ ARKANSAS

The Hebron Cemetery is located in the New Castle area on St. Francis County Road 409. Four African-American families donated 1/2 acre of land each for the cemetery.  The New Hebron Church was established in 1891 and the cemetery was established shortly thereafter.

 

Today the cemetery is overgrown and unkempt. There are many unmarked graves located within the cemetery, quite a few with only the funeral home marker, which is illegible. The names listed here are from visible markers and names of people known to be buried in the Hebron Cemetery.

 

The oldest is that of my great-great-grandmother, Elizabeth Maggett Brock, who died in 1899. The most recent is from 1977.
