The survey of cemetery inscriptions for Old Whitehall Cemetery was made in June 1986 by Mrs. Elinor McCalman Seward and have been published in Vol. III, "Cemetery Inscriptions of Claiborne Parish" which are available from J & W Enterprises, P. O. Box 17706, Shreveport, LA 71138-0706 and may perhaps be found in your local library. Inscriptions of "new" Whithall cemetery are in VOL IV.
I haven't been by those cemeteries in several years but doubt the old cemetery is visible from hiway and likely will be difficult to find.
In 1986 inscriptions as follow were found in the old cemetery.

(Note: When this cemetery was copied earlier there were the two additional markers below. There also seems to be other graves marked with rocks and brick, however the cemetery is overgrown in brush and weeds and these markers hard to locate.)
