Camp Ground Cemetery

Also known as Gregory Cemetery, Hyde Park Cemetery, and Wycamp Cemetery.

Also known as Hyde Park Cemetery and Gregory Cemetery, this is thought to be the oldest public cemetery in the county. It was started in mid-1800's as a family graveyard and later was opened to the public. Mrs. Jesse Bonner Daggett of Marianna, Lee Co., Arkansas, recorded this cemetery in July 1941 (another file said 1921). It is not known if all of the information came from the markers or was added by the compiler. Photos of existing grave markers and pieces of markers were made by Wanda Ridge and are kept in a file in the Tri-County Genealogy Libraqry.
