TULOT, AR - Descendants of black sharecroppers in Poinsett County hope to have two cemeteries listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Archaeologists and Arkansas State University students have traced grave sites at the Tulot Cemetery southwest of Trumann and plan to do similar research at the Judd Hill Cemetery.

The oldest headstone at Tulot dates back to 1895.
