According to a postcard written by Joseph Joshua Hicks dated 16 Oct 1941 to his mother Louisa Bailey Hicks back home in Model, TN. He had been visiting Amanda Brunson, Bertha, Lena, Annie and Fonnie Hicks in Mississippi county, Arkansas. He had been told by them that "Alfred, Florence and Pearl were buried at No 9." This was quite curious so I got out the Atlas and low and behold, there is a Number Nine, Arkansas.
Number Nine, Arkansas was named after the Number Nine mill. The township sprang up as people moved to the area to work clearing timber. I can not find any records on the Internet for the Number Nine cemetery, but I have contacted a local funeral home and am waiting on a response. So here is what information that I have to date.
