This cemetery is located near the old Morris School for Boys and was maintained by the Franciscan Brothers until the school was sold in August 2000. This list was prepared by Leroy Blair of the White County Historical Society, who visited the cemetery September 12, 2000. A list prepared years earlier by Brother Linus Meyers of Morris School contained names and death dates only. Blair found 22 graves that were not on the Meyers list. There are 11 Franciscan Brothers buried here. Blair provided these directions to the cemetery: “From Searcy take Highway 36 west about 3½ miles to Morris School Road. Turn right [north]; the cemetery is on the right about one-quarter mile past the old school. There is a gate by the road and the cemetery is back in a field about 100 yards. It is a clean cemetery.”

The area surrounding Morris School was sold by the Catholic Church in 2000. (See 2003 White County Heritage.) The land including the cemetery was sold to nearby residents Mary and Kenneth Cook, who locked the gate to the cemetery to deter hunters, but will open it for cemetery visitors.

Leroy Blair visited the cemetery on February 23, 2007, and prepared a new list, adding Row numbers – starting at the gate and going toward the back of the cemetery. There are two infants buried near the far end of the cemetery.

There is a list of veterens buried in this ccemetery at the end of the list
