This is a cemetery that will soon be lost to everyone. All this land has been purchased by Weyerhauser Co. and they are clearing all the land and resetting trees. They will move these native stones and it will be lost even to the family members left in Yell County. Someone needs to fence it off and mark it as a family plot.
