Also referred to as "Forty and Eight" Cemetery. Located east of Blytheville.
St. Peter Church was located on the property at one time, it eventually
fell apart. No one knows what happened to the rubble from the church,
possibly picked up by passers-by. This cemetery is in good condition
and is currently maintained by members of the HARDESTY family. Everyone
buried here is believed to be related in some way. Family members
believe there are others buried here and the stones were either damaged
or removed. I am still researching this cemetery.
