It is located in the S ½ of the SE ¼ of Sec 9, T9N, R5W on land owned by Charles Lawrence of Judsonia, a great-grandson of James Boyce.

According to Laveda Steed, the land was homesteaded by James Boyce who came to Arkansas from West Virginia in 1886. The cemetery contains gravesites of family members and relatives. All headstones were in good shape in 2001 except the stone for James Boyce, which had been broken into three pieces. There are numerous gravesites marked only with rocks.
