Search Thomas H. Morland Family Cemetery:

This cemetery is located due east-northeast of Pleasant Ridge, AR (the intersection of Hwy 143 & CR 219). Go north off AR Hwy 143 on County Road 418 to just past the first 90 degree bend in the road (to the right); it is just after a cattle gate on the right side of the road and is completely unmarked. A long driveway to a homestead is on the left across the road from the gate.
Its location was marked on USGS topographical maps of the area; then found, verified, and documented by two inscribed headstones found near the edge of the road in the place the map indicated a cemetery was supposed to be. There is also one "marker stone" in the ground and two small, plain, carved rectangular, marble markers (w/no markings), lying one on top of another nearby.
The size of the cemetery as marked on the USGS map (compared to other known cemeteries in the area that also appear on this same map) suggests a larger-sized cemetery once existed here.
The property is fenced off with barbed wire and the burial area does not appear to be maintained as a cemetery (as there's clear evidence of a cattle/driving path from the gate running through the area the map says is cemetery area).
Further exploration was done and no other markers/stones could be identified.
