The elusive 105 mile spur crossroad cemetery was found and photographed.
It is located: Rush Street, about 1/2 mile off Hwy. 19 North

It is also called the SOWELL family cemetery.

The original transcript provided to LAGenWeb lists 9 internments. The new transcript notes 15 internments.

The transcript provided to LAGenWeb was taken from a document written in 1961/1967 that the local
genealogy and historical society can no longer find when questioned in 2011.

There were several additions to this cemetery with this July 2013 reading.

The original transcript was taken from a 1961 or 1967 document written by Dr. J. S. Anderson, President of the LGHS.

105 Mile Spur Crossroad Cemetery / Sowell Cemetery

"In 1969 this cemetery was cataloged and with no signage was dubbed as the 105 Mile Spur Crossroads Cemetery. In June 2013 it was discovered and proven through obituaries of those interred that it is actually the Sowell Family Cemetery. This cemetery is located on Rush Street, about 1/2 mile off Hwy. 19 North" --Added by: Pamela Jean-Ludington-Wallstead-Rice
