Henderson Family Cemetery
Baxter County,

The Henderson Family Cemetery is immediately north of the Henderson, Arkansas, Post Office on U.S. Highway 62/412. Stone post surround the cemetery with chains looped between the stone posts.

When Ann Louise Barstow Henderson died in 1951, her cremains were placed in the Mountain Home Cemetery, Baxter County, Arkansas. When her husband, Bruce Chandler Henderson, Sr., died in 1962, his cremains were placed beside her remains. Their only child, Bruce Chandler Henderson, Jr. wanted to bring their cremains back to their home place at Henderson, Arkansas. During his final illness, his wife, Karen Allegree Henderson, promised him that she would see that their cremains and his would be placed in a family cemetery at that location.

Following his death, Karen Henderson, obtained a permit from Baxter County, Arkansas, to establish a cemetery for cremains only on the home place. The permit was dated November 29, 2004. She then proceded to establish the cemetery. She disinterred the two sets of remains from the Mountain Home Cemetery and moved them along with the existing double monument to the new site. She also had an identical double monument erected for her husband and her. Between the two double monuments, she placed a black granite memorial with an etching of the family home with an enlarged picture of the fireplace superimposed in front of the home. On close examination, the fireplace has a large millstone pictured in it. That millstone was placed in front of the black granite memorial.
