Perryville Cemetery (partial listing)
also known as Ragsdale Cemetery
Perry County, Arkansas

Partially surveyed August 2008 by Patti Vance Hays

Perryville Cemetery

Take Aplin Road (west) off State Highway 9 in Perryville; turn left at the fairgrounds (Hickory Street); turn left on F Street; you will travel a short distance and then turn right through a field (you should be able to see the cemetery within a fence at that time).
