This cemetery is located on Highway 157 north from Judsonia. It was first listed in 1968 by the Providence Extension Homemakers Club and published that year by the White County Historical Society in its annual White County Heritage. In that list the gravesites were numbered and not alphabetical as they are here. The Homemakers described the cemetery as "well kept" and beside the Providence Church.

Providence Cemetery's records were updated by Historical Society member Leroy Blair after he visited the site several times in November 2000. He added 617 names and other new information to the list. Some are new graves, others graves with new stones. He found 122 graves that were marked only with rocks, 37 with funeral home markers that were no longer legible, 7 marked only with metal stakes or pipes, and 4 depressions that were not marked at all. He also found that 11 names on the original list were actually burials at the Owens/ Henson Cemetery about a half/ mile from Providence Cemetery. Subsequent additions have been made to this list by the Historical Society based on published obituaries.
