Long Description:
The old one-room country school and the cemetery next to it are named Ruddick, whilst the church connected with the cemetery is called Reddick Assembly of God. It is possible, but too improbable, that both a Ruddick and a Reddick family settled in the same area. The oldest Reddick grave (apart from 2 undated infant graves) is from 1941, whilst the oldest Ruddick grave is from 1869, when the cemetery was started. It is likely that someone in the family changed their name, thus starting a separately named family tree.

An extensive web search for the Ruddick School didn't turn up much; just a reference in The Encyclopedia of Arkansas to the school mentioning that it was also known as Ozark No. 15. The sign on the front of the school says
