Also known as The Wallace Burial Grounds







Location:  Take I-55 North from Marion, Arkansas.  Exit the Interstate at the Jericho Exit.  Turn back West on black top highway.  Go about 2 miles to a crossroads where an old store is, Wollard's Store.  Turn left on another black top road, a trailer home is about 300 yards from the black top.  Turn right on a dirt road in front of the trailer and few feet on past the trailer you can see the cemetery.  Large trees are there and you can also see some markers standing now, May 1995 showing ones buried there.  Many people are buried there that have no markers.  Information is being gathered about the families buried there with no markers, so hopefully at a later time we can add more names.  If you have family there with no markers or know of someone who does, will you please contact the Crittenden County Library at Marion, Ark. and tell them.
