Howe Plantation Cemetery
Wabash
Phillips County
Arkansas  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery, located behind a sharecoppers' church in Wabash on Phillips County Road 433, was part of what is known by the local residents as Howe Plantation Cemetery. The plantation was owned by Jimmy Howe, son of Otis Wilson Howe and Harriet Virginia May, and grandson of Wilson Herrick Howe.

African American sharecroppers in and around Wabash worked the plantation fields until the early 1950s. Due to poverty of sharecoppers, many were buried (as well as their family members) in a field behind the sharecoppers' church.

There are more unmarked graves in this cemetery than graves with stones. There is no sign for the cemetery. CR 433 can be accessed by driving through the granary at Wabash.
