New Troy Cemetery lies just a short distance north of the Troy Church and Cemetery. It is about 11 miles after you turn by the Collins, AR store.
This cemetery is very old. There are several unmarked graves and there are several that just has a foot stone but nothing else with a name on it or anything. I compiled this on Sep 29, 2001 after walking the cemetery and reading all of the markers.
There is a new sign up that says New Troy on the right side of the road. I was looking for my ancestors and just wrote them all down so I could help others with their hunt.
