The Holly Grove Community had tried for years to purchase from Dierks/Weyerhasuser Co., land adjacent to the church on the West, for a cemetery.  Each office referred the proposition to a higher office, until 1972, when they were told that the company elected to sell no land.

Friday, July 7, of that year, Mrs. Susanna (Anner) Frachiseur, wife of Jim A. Frachiseur, and mother of eight sons, most of whom lived in the community, died.  Still determined to fulfill her wish of being laid to rest near the church of which she had been a member for more than 50 years, the sons approached Clift Lane, who owned the acreage across the road, cornering the churchyard.

Instead of selling the land to the community, he said he wished to give enough for a large cemetery.  With the assistance of friends, a number of phone calls to state officials, etc., space was prepared and she was buried Sunday.

Seven months later, her husband died on Friday, and was buried at her side on Sunday.  Within the following ten years, two of their sons, Nathan and Roy, and two infant great-granddaughters were buried nearby; also Rev. Rimon Wilson of DeQueen, who had pastored the church about 30 years.

Early in July, 1983, Mrs. Jessie Briscoe became the eighth to be buried in this beautiful new cemetery.  A new brick church was constructed several years ago to replace the old one, and a full time pastor was hired.

Please visit the Polk County Library.  There is a genealogy section at the library.  Or, check www.FindaGrave.com as the Polk County Genealogy Society (Mary L Broderick)  is attempting to put all of this information on the FindAGrave site along with the Markers for the Graves.  It is a massive undertaking.
