GAMBLE CEMETERY, near Centerton, Benton Co., Arkansas

Directions: From Bentonville take Hwy 102 west, at Centerton go right (north) on 102B/Main St., go left/east on Sebe Rd/ Town Vue St. abt 1 mi (past 123?? Sebe Rd), turn left/south on small gravel path lined with tall bushes & trees. Gravel path is no longer marked as cemetery entrance! You can't see headstones from road but it is immediately before you reach a new housing development going up at Sebe & Keller Rd. (If you reach Keller Rd you went too far). Cemetery is partially maintained as folks are able to donate their time. I have seen it at its worse and at its best, there is NO caretaker, so no guarantees. Be careful when you visit. Path is often over grown and difficult to drive in a car, go in good weather.

All headstones indexed, transcribed & photographed by Cindy L. Marcell, 2001 - 2007.

(above photo taken in 2002, note cemetery sign has since disappeared as of 2007)

*** Please note this cemetery has been desecrated by unknown persons. There are many stones that have been toppled & broken. This cemetery is "ripe" for a group to step up and preserve this site. There are Civil War vets and folks who were born in the 1700's and later buried here. Is there a group out there that can help????

Please NOTE just because photos may be grouped by surnames does NOT necessarily indicate a relationship nor are they necessarily buried beside each other.  This cemetery is fully transcribed. All names below have photos courtesy of Cindy Marcell.  There are many rocks here that are obvious markers and many stones that are now illegible. I have documented all I found & could read. Sorry I do not have access to burial records.
