Onyx, Arkansas is at the junction of Hwys 27 & 314. Most of my maps show a “Ballew Family Cemetery” near this location, but the church you see above is not named on a single one of them. It took me a while to discover this is the Onyx Landmark Missionary Baptist Church – and that’s part of the Fourche La Fave River running in front of it. That low-water bridge is the only access to the church, so when the river is up and running high … you have to pray extra hard. Map below –
