Beal Cemetery, Crawford County, Arkansas

This cemetery is located off the Kibler-Yoestown road in Crawford County, Arkansas, in the Newtown community. The cemetery is named after Dr. Beal who donated the land for the cemetery. This is one of several African American cemeteries in NW Arkansas. To see the headstones, simply click on the name. These photos were taken by Tonia E. Holleman of Van Buren Arkansas.  Ronald Walton uploaded the images to the Find a Grave website.

Both are thanked for their tireless effort to record and document the burials of the African American community of Crawford and Sebastian Counties.
