New Hope is located north of Searcy. The original listing was prepared by Cloie Presley and Nell Henry of the White County Historical Society in October 1962. It was updated 38 years later by Society member Leroy Blair, who added some 40 names and other information and provided these comments: "To get to this cemetery from Searcy, take Highway 16 north to Four Mile Hill. Turn left on Oak Forrest Road. Go about 1 ½ miles to Coles lane, which is not marked. There is a sign that reads ‘Lighthouse Church of Deliverance.’ Turn right at that sign and go about one-third mile. The cemetery is just past the mailbox at 143 Coles Lane, about 100 yards off the road. It is fenced and fairly clean. I visited this cemetery October 12, 2000. I found 51 graves that are marked by rocks or old funeral home markers that cannot be read. There are about 30 depressions or mounds with no markings at all."
