Destroyed AA Cemeteries

Does anyone have any ideas on how I might be able to locate an old cemetery that I believe might have been destroyed or paved over? Is it possible there might be books on specific cemeteries or maybe old records? Is it possible that state/county might have the information? At one time, I read that some old AA cemeteries were destroyed wrecklessly. How might one go about recovering the records? Might there be a site where I could gain such info? Or is there a regular method for performing such searches?

I have only come across one other person looking for the same cemetery, and she'd gotten the info from an old relative and thought it might be bogus. I tried to e-mail her, but the address was no longer valid, so if you're still reading the forums, there really was an Old St. James cemetery in or near Magnolia, Arkansas. It was already old when my mother (87y.o.a.) was a child. Any and all information is sincerely appreciated. God bless! Dinah
