Old Arcadia Cemetery, in Crawford County, Kansas, USA, is on a gentle slope less than a mile north of town, and about a half mile west of the Missouri state line. Cox Creek and the Fort Scott Subdivision railroad line pass between the cemetery and the state line. (Now a freight line of the BNSF Railway network, the rail line was part of the St. Louis–San Francisco Railway for much of the cemetery’s history.) The cemetery hides back on a dirt road from its entrance on North 260th Street, where a sign points the way to “Forest Hill Cemetery”.

In “Crawford County Tombstone Inscriptions: Old Arcadia Forest Hill Cemetery”, William C. Cuthbertson (of the Crawford County Genealogy Society) wrote a detailed introduction to the cemetery and documented its tombstones in late 1971. He included a story about a Philip Hathaway family tombstone having this inscription: “This cemetery dedicated to wife Elizabeth who was first to sleep herein.”
