"Judsonia's mystery grave,"

In Judsonia, Arkansas A fence surrounds the grave of an unknown child.

When the engineers were running their surveys, they were told of this isolated burial spot. That highway departments have hearts was thoroughly demonstrated. The grave was marked and protected. Of course, there are different stories. Some say that the grave was dug for the child of a poverty-stricken family, who could afford no better resting-place for their child.

Another story is said to be the grave of a baby girl, not quite two years old, who died in a high-chair accident sometime around the years 1890 or 1891.

Older residents of the community said that she was a daughter of tenants on a local farm. They were poor so neighbors and friends made a casket and the baby's body was buried in a fence corner. Later, adjustments were made in the property lines, and the grave was found to be within the Hopper holdings.

"The grave now has a very nice stone with several flowers planted. On a tree beside the grave is a figurine of an angel." The grave is located in the triangle formed when the northbound lanes of Highway 67/167 and Highway 157 merge.
