This was the first grave in Old Baptist Cemetery in Center Valley, Pope Co., AR.

It's the grave of the first infant of James Littleton Burris and Elizabeth Adeline Ashmore.

The baby was stillborn in 1841, about a year after they married, and about two and a half years after they arrived in Pope County from Lawrence Co., TN.
