There is a Hilton Cemetery near Mena. It is on John Hilton's
farm. My notes show I phoned him in 1999 to verify that Shadrack
Jones Moore was buried there. He was very nice and verified the
tombstone was still readable. Shadrack was buried there in 1904. He
also said there were several tombstones in the cemetery and he wished
some of the descendants would help clean it up. I didn't ask him
about any other surnames since my Shadrack was the only one in my
line buried there. I cannot find Hilton's phone number now but I got
it by calling information in Mena. His farm is a few short miles out
of Mena - northeast I think. I am surprised that the Polk Co.
genealogists have not recorded this cemetery. You have to go on
Hilton's property to reach it. Let me know how you come out.
