    It is thought the cemetery is in Clarksville, Johnson County,Arkansas.  The person posting the photos of the gravestone did notreport what cemetery it was in!  Death was reported as occurring inClarksville.  The memorial on Find a Grave clarifies that he wasburied in Fort Douglas, though death occurred in Clarksville.  Nophoto of the gravestone is posted on the memorial, and there are grossfactual errors in both Presley's memorial and his wife's, likediffering dates than those on the grave.  no comment is made, so thereis no way to determine if the memorializer meant to be correcting anerror in the dates carved on the gravestone, or this is just acareless error in the memorials.
