Directions: Take LA Hwy. 8 from Leesville toward Burr Ferry, and turn right onto Camp Baker Road. Go approximately .1 mile and turn right onto Hickory Ridge Road. Continue on this road until you reach Lake Vernon. This small cemetery was located in between two brick houses on the left side of the road.

Description: In the early 1900's, this small cemetery was located across the creek from the John Smith homestead, in a beautiful grove of trees. It was fenced and lovingly maintained by family members. When the Smith family died out,children married and moved away, the cemetery was left behind unattended and unloved. The property sold at a later date as part of lakefront property. The new owners did not like the idea of a cemetery on their property and at first attempted to move the tombstones. When that failed, they ignored the small plot, and it soon fell into disrepair. Today the fence has been removed the owner tries to maintain it, there are only a few small metal markers on top of concrete.
