WHITTON CEMETERY

Whitton, Mississippi County, Arkansas

 

 

Transcriptions by Debbie Lunsford Yates

January 2, 2004

 

 

This cemetery is located 6 1/2 miles northeast of Tyronza, off US Highway 118.

From Highway 118 at Whitton, turn south on Highway 308.

The cemetery will be approximately 1/4 mile on the left, across from Whitton Baptist Church.

 

All visible markers were recorded. Although precaution was taken in recording this information,

many of the markers are very deteriorated and were difficult to read.

Any corrections/additions welcomed.
