A Vickers cemetery is reported to have been west of Ringold, LA. The cemetery is now over grown & no attempt was made to search it. A Librarian at Ringold, LA said she had been to it at one time. A search of Hempstead Co., AR cemeteries was made with no results. His sister Eliza Vickers Snell is buried at cemetery in Emmet, AR,SE of HWY 67.
