Napier Cemetery
(Ivy Bluff Cemetery) Page
This cemetery is known by both names. It is located on a bluff overlooking Buffalo River. It is at the mouth of Grinder's Creek near the community of Oak Grove. The story has long been told that one of the men requested to be buried sitting up in a chair so he could look out upon the land. There are indications of several unmarked gravesites. Descendants James K. Pollock and Rosemary Hinson shared family information. Additional information from American Historical Magazine - April, 1896
