Janeway Cemetery
Saline County, Arkansas

Contributed by Katrina Johnson, Mar 29, 2001 [michael@up-link.net]. Total records = 6.

This cemetery is located near the old Janeway Lumber Camp. Before other lumber companies destroyed it there had been about 65 known graves, you can find pieces of headstone in this area today and 3 remaining readable stones. Take highway 5 to highway 9 out of Benton, go north on 9 until you reach the Sulphur Springs Road on the left, the you will take the second road on the right, cross Alum Fork on a low water slab bridge, go to the crossroads at the top of the hill, these crossroads are 17 miles from Hillcrest Grocery in Benton, you will take the left hand crossroad up until you come to a split in the road and on the right hand split there is a large water bar and you walk from here following a dim old road crossing the water bar into the woods and if you don't watch for the remaining stones you will walk right past them.

Surveyed as of Apr 16, 1999.
