SHADY HILLS COMMUNITY CEMETERY

Photos

 

This cemetery is located on private land in the Shady Hills Community, approximately 0.3 miles north of Prairie Grove Missionary Baptist Church cemetery and 150 yards east of Hardy-Billups Road.  The cemetery was called “Sanderfer Cemetery” by Rolph Chase, but after closer inspection, the Sanderfer plot is a family plot that is fenced within a larger cemetery.  The other stones in the cemetery are knocked over.
