McElroy Cemetery

McElroy Cemetery is located in Wynne, ( Cross County) Arkansas. From Wynne, take Hwy 284 West and go about 3 miles and you will come to a curve continue around the curve for about a mile and you will see McElroy Methodist Church on the left, continue for about another mile and you will come to another curve, go straight ,which is Hwy 350. The cemetery is on the right. It is nestled among several old trees and is very clean and well kept. There are several old stones and some are missing. I was able to read the ones that are there and I know you will enjoy yourself while you are searching for loved ones.

If you have any questions about any of these or would like for me to recheck something in this cemetery, feel free to email me at branch@ipa.net
