Freedom Cemetery: Unmarked Grave Project

freedom.jpg

Freedom Cemetery committee members are working to start a new project which will provide headstones for unmarked graves.

The committee is in need of volunteers and funds for the project. Please note that these funds will not be added to the maintenance fund.

If you know the name and location of the grave of someone buried in  Freedom Cemetery that does not have a headstone or any living relatives, please submit their name to a committee member.

A 10×12 headstone costs approximately $50. Contributions may be made to Freedom Cemetery by putting a donation in the lockbox at the Cemetery with a note indicating it is for new headstones. You can also mail it to Freedom Cemetery, P.O. Box 335, Waldron, AR 72958, or by calling 479-637-3819.

Without donations this project will not be accomplished. Headstones will be ordered as funds become available.
