Focal point of the cemetery is a large, imposing obelisk-type monument marking the grave of the Rev. Elijah Camp Morris, D.D. Morris was the second pastor of Centennial Baptist Church in Helena, founder of Arkansas Baptist College, founders and publisher of the "Baptist Vanguard," and president of the National Baptist convention for 28 years. Members of his family, as well as other African-American families, are buried here. Among these are Adams, Anderson, Clark, Cooper, and Drew families.
