It was known as the Roher Cemetery and had around 50 grave sites which are all now overgrown and most of the tombstones are missing or broken as of 2004. It sits a few hundred feet east of I-55 and immediately south of the Pemiscot-New Madrid Co line just outside Portageville with the Portage Bayou flowing on its northern boundary; it is on private property in the middle of farm land.

If you can use this please do so. William's tombstone is also gone now (stolen I think) but we took pictures about 10 years ago.
