Shepherd Cemetery, Yell County, Arkansas

Updated directions to Shepherd Cemetery: Many thanks to Ralph Mungle for sending in these updated directions.

From Dardanelle take Rt 22/Rt 7 to Hwy 28. Follow Hwy 28 (right) to County Road (CR-40) (right). Follow CR-40 to CR-420 (this is not well marked but goes to the left from CR-40 - a sign reading "Omega Community" is at the turn off of CR-40, a dirt road when I visited). When you come to the "old chicken barns" on CR-420, turn left behind the barns (don't pass the barns). Go to the dead-end at a house. The cemetery is located to the right of the house with a gate and chain link fence. Before you make the trip, be advised that most graves are marked with only fieldstones and so far my research has not located a plot map. Good Luck.

Original directions:
Copied and updated June 1991 by Marilyn Roberts and Cornelia Daniels. This cemetery is located in the Omega Community. From Dardanelle, take Hwy # for about 7 miles. Then turn right on County road # for about 2 miles. Turn left at the Omega Community sign.
