|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The town of Blue Eye (Stone Co, MO) sits on the state line of MO and AR. Most of it is on the MO side as well as the cemetery.
Blue Eye was called Butler Cemetery back in the 1910s through part of the 1930s.
The Blue Eye Memorial Cemetery is located on the north side of the state line, about three-fourths of a mile west of Blue Eye. Three more tracts have been purchased and added to the original cemetery. The earliest date found on a stone was for Sarah A. Rhodes in 1856. The Mo-Ark Hook and Thimble Club had a chain link fence built across the front in 1984. They had an arch with the name of the cemetery erected over the middle gate in 1985. Rest rooms were renovated in 1986. Two tables with benches were placed in the west parking area.
