Number Nine Cemetery

My wife was born on Number Nine, reputedly one of the largest plantation "towns" in the area, near Blytheville.

We visited the last remaining resident/her uncle, and he took us on a tour of what remains of the cemetery. It is not maintained most of those stones that were there have been vandalized. Church that was there was burned down, bell stolen. We/he are very concerned it will be plowed under when he's gone. At one time, he had recorded well over 200 names, but he is very old, can't track them down.

Is there any way for me to work on getting a marker? I wrote the state legislator, no response yet. It seems to me there is historical significance to the spot for Arkansas, not just descendants.

Any help?
