Search Old Indian Burial Ground:

Located at the mouth of George's Creek about 300 yards southwest of the George's Creek Cemetery, west if Yellville in Marion County Arkansas. The George's Creek Cemetery wasn't established when this burial ground was used by a few pioneers. This burial site is an ancient one; a few Indians were the first interments here. In the late 1800s there was a church house and school building nearby. The White River branch of the Missouri Pacific Railway passed near this spot also. John and Agnes Hudson were the first white people buried here. John Hudson settled the creek bottom just below the mouth of Georges Creek and cleared the first land there in 1833. He lived in the bottom opposite the spout spring. This land is known at one time as the Davenport farm. Also, John Overcan, Sheriff Billy Brown, and William A. Wood , who were very early settlers of the area, are buried here. (also from the Bramble Bush) George's Creek is named after William A."Dancin Bill" Wood's son, George Washington Wood who owned land in the area before his father moved there.
