Contributed by Walter Davis, Dec 30, 2003, maintained by Arnold Hill, last edited Jun 20, 2012 [windmill@windstream.net]. Total records = 1,118.

The May Cemetery is located on the left of Highway 216, 2 miles South of Houston, Perry County, Arkansas.

The land for May Cemetery was donated in 1873 by Mr. and Mrs. Josh May.

The oldest known grave is Mr. Jesse E. Harrison, born Apr 29, 1824, died Dec 03, 1864 and his wife Mrs. Mary Lewis Harrison born Feb 9, 1822 died Dec 6, 1865.

This is my personal list of people buried at May Cemetery. Macel Davis and I have kept track of it for over 60 years and most recently transcribed the tombstones in Oct 2003. In June of 2012, due to health reasons, I have turned this work over to Arnold Hill to maintain.
