The Cecil Cemetery is located on the late Francis Marion Cecil homestead.  The one acre plot joins the Vandervoort, Arkansas city limits on the Northeast.

The first person buried here is not known.  In 1896, when the Kansas City Southern Railroad was being built through what is now Vandervoort, a construction worker's child died, while they were camped on the job, and is buried in Cecil Cemetery.

Mr. William Pipes, in 1897, was traveling on the K.C.S. train with his children, when a son became ill an died.  The son, fourteen years old, Claude Pipes, is buried here.

The Cecil family moved to Polk County about 1850, when Francis Marion Cecil was about two years old.  Francis M. Cecil married Rhoda R. LeBow and settled near the cemetery which bears his name.  He reared a family of thirteen children.

There are about 16 unnamed and/or unmarked graves in Cecil Cemetery, among these are the names, Fort, Tennie A. Hansard, Pollard, Hudgins and Benbrooks.
