“A walking survey reveals 6 upright unmarked field stones. They are located in an area approximately 150’ x 150 feet which indicates that the cemetery was quite large. Only the following has an inscription. The cemetery was named for the Sales family that had operated a ferry near the present dam site on the Norfork River.”

CONDITION: The cemetery had been completely overgrown with weeds chest high. In March 2011 the Baxter County Sheriff Department Inmate Program cleaned the cemetery to park like standards.

AGE: Oldest readable stone is 1873.
