Barnett Chapel, Yell County, Arkansas

This cemetery is about 200 ft. south of Hwy. 60 on the Sunlight Bay or the Plainview Water Company road. This cemetery is referred to as a colored cemetery, however it may be that a lot of these people were migrant workers with the Ft. Smith Lumber Co. and also working on the railroad or Nimrod Dam. Lots of people followed the timber and mill work until it played out. The date on the monuments show about the same years when all the work was going on here. There used to be a large church here by the cemetery and probably was used for the school also. It was once a large thriving community. Updated 18 May 1993, originally typed by Marilyn Miller Roberts.

The cemetery is behind a house and is very over-grown. These pictures were taken July 2003.
