The large Kirby's Tucker Memorial Cemetery is between Mountain Home and Gassville on Baxter CR 6
The Kirby's Tucker Memorial Cemetery, also known simply as the Tucker Cemetery, is located on Baxter CR 6 (Tucker Cemetery Road) about 2 miles North of U. S. Highway 62 West of Mountain Home. This is a large perpetual care and maintenance cemetery under management of the Kirby and Family Funeral Home. The cemetery was created when four acres of land were donated by Newt and Mack Tucker in 1844, according to Mary Ann Messick, although she states the oldest marked grave is from December 2, 1861.
