PROSPERITY CEMETERY

Earle, Crittenden County, Arkansas

(Tyronza Township)



 

Surveyed May 12, 2002 by Deborah Lunsford Yates and Wayne Yates

From Earle, travel north on
US Highway 149 for 5 miles to Three Forks. Turn right off of Highway 149 on to Lunsford Road. The cemetery is located approximately 2 1/4 miles, on the left side of the gravel road.

 

This is a black cemetery and was once the site of New Prosperity Church. The church no longer exists. The cemetery is fairly maintained but with overgrowth existing on the edge of the creek on the north side. All visible stones were recorded, although other stones may be located in the wooded area next to the creek. At least one unreadable funeral home marker was located, and evidence existed of several unmarked graves.
