None known Photo by Leroy Blair This site, which has also been known as Stringtown Cemetery was first recorded by Leroy Blair of the White County Historical Society following a visit on April 24, 2002. He learned of its existence from the property owner when he was researching an unrecorded slave cemetery nearby. "I was asking for permission to look for the old Slave Cemetery that I had learned about," Blair reported, "and he said there was an old cemetery on some other property he owned just west of Little Red near the river. To get to the cemetery from Little Red, take Highway 305 north toward Hickory Flat about a tenth of a mile to Old River Road and turn left. Go about three miles and turn left on an unmarked road at about 140 Old River Road. Go about a half-mile south to the first house by the river. The cemetery is located in an open field on the left of the road across from the house. It needs mowing but otherwise is in good condition." Blair found two inscribed double headstones, one containing the names of Minerva Hicks and her son William, and the other stone for Mabry Hicks and his second wife Lucinda. Blair also saw approximately 10 other graves that were marked with field stones. In January 2004, Blair was told by Terry Butler of Pangburn that he had known this graveyard years ago as "Stringtown Cemetery," so named because the settlement nearby was named Stringtown. Blair, who was chairman of the Historical Society’s cemetery committee and a member of the board, visited the graveyard again on February 18, 2005, and found no changes since his first visit.
