Wolf Family Cemetery is found near the old McPhearson community

The Wolf Family Cemetery is located in a field on private property belonging to the Freeman family in the old McPhearson community.  Access is by permission of the property owner only and can be made from Baxter CR 124 or CR 125.  There is visual evidence of several graves here marked only with field stones.  The Wolf family history places at least six members of the Wolf family as being buried here, possibly more.  The location of the family home stood about 100 yards North of the field cemetery. 

I was escorted to the cemetery in January, 2012 by Annamae Freeman, who also provided some information concerning the cemetery. 

The Wolf Family Cemetery is found here in this field.

The Porter Family Cemetery is located in Porterfield Estates on Baxter CR 106 along the White River

The Porter Family Cemetery is located on private property on the left side of Baxter CR 106. Take State Highway 341 (Push Mountain Road) to the South from State Highway 201 near Norfork. As soon as you cross over the Dr. Z. T. Sheid Bridge across the White River, turn left on Riverview Drive. Follow Riverview Drive about 2 miles until you enter "Porterfield Estates", along the river. Shortly after entering Porterfield Estates, Baxter CR 106 will veer off to the right going toward a home and some turkey houses. The Cemetery is located on a knoll in a field on the left side of baxter CR 106.

The small cemetery is fenced on all sides. There is a large double manufactured garvestone. As of January, 2012, it seems that only one burial has taken place here, being that of Mr. Gene Porter.
