NEW HOPE ARMSTRONG CEMETERY

 

 

This is an African American cemetery located on Old Yorkville Road, approximately 3 miles from U.S. Highway 69. The cemetery is on a hillside and many of the graves have collapsed and are in bad need of repair. At least 56 graves are located in the cemetery without stones of any kind marking the interments. Another four stones bear no visible markings.

 

There are three World War I veterans, five World War II veterans, one Korean War Veteran, one Vietnam War veteran ,and two veterans who served in inter-war years buried in this cemetery.

 

Surveyed by Russell D. James and Mike Lowery on 22 October 2003.
