Bell Cemetery (aka Bell-Youree) — View all Interments
Although the descendants of William W. Bell went to a great deal of expense and difficulty to acquire the Historical Marker and to fence the William Bell Cemetery, much of the original cemetery (where others not in the Bell Family are buried) remains outside the fence in the woods slowly being destroyed by nature and livestock.
The Bell plot is fully fenced and measures approximately 8 yards by 18 yards. It contains 7 tombstones recording the names of 12 individuals buried within the fenced area.
There are about 20 marked burials (with legible names) in the woods, South and West of the Bell Plot, including a fenced plot containing 4 Youree headstones. We also spotted at least three Bois d'Arc markers and the remains of a dozen slate/sandstone markers no longer containing any legible information.
