This cemetery listing was first prepared by Joe Hammond of Kensett in February 1976. It is located on land which originally was the Lessenberry Farm but at the time of the survey was owned by Irvin Wright of Kensett. Hammond reported seeing one unmarked grave.

The cemetery was visited February 19, 2001, by Leroy Blair of the White County Historical Society, who reported it to be "in very poor condition, very overgrown, with signs of vandalism." He provided the following directions to reach it: "From Kensett, take Pete Hall Road south about one mile to a blue/gray house on the right of the road. The cemetery is behind this house in a pine grove about 200 yards from the house. Beware of the dog at this house."

Blair noted assorted problems with tombstones. He said he did not find the unmarked grave that was mentioned in the 1976 report. "A Mrs. McDonald who lives near Griffithville and knows a little about this cemetery" told Blair that the unmarked grave is possibly that of Sarah Lessenberry. She did not know any dates.
