The first people to settle on the land where the cemetery is located were the Floyds, who moved to Polk County from Georgia. Mr. Floyd was the great grandfather of Mrs. Joe Anders of Hatfield, Arkansas. There were already several graves here when the Floyds arrived. Many of these earlier graves were covered by small house-like structures.

In later years a Baptist Church was built near the cemetery. The Old Line Road was near the Church house.

Although there are no tombstones marketing their graves the wife of Henry Floyd, the great grandfather and the great grandmother of Mrs. Joe Floyd Anders are buried here. Also the Greens who came from Georgia, relatives of Mrs. Joe Anders, are buried here.

In 1926, Joe Anders donated two acres of land to be known as the Antioch Cemetery.
