Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a single (44 years old) mother of a 22 year old daughter. She is Princessrugrat on here.

I have a deep love for cemeteries. I love the art, the history, and the untold stories about each resident. I find it peaceful and thoroughly relaxing to walk through cemeteries. I'm working on several but the main one at the moment is Oak Grove Cemetery in Conway, Faulkner County, Arkansas.

I am a member of the organization called Preservation of African American Cemeteries
(PAAC).

I was born and raised here in Arkansas as were both of my parents and all of my grandparents.I started searching my genealogy in the Sixth Grade as a project and haven't stopped since.

Kattie Mayo, Ola, AR
I know this may sound strange, but do you by any chance know any of the family of Kattie Mayo Find A Grave Memorial# 103644772 buried in Sandlin Cemetery in Ola, Yell County?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Nancy Cook

RE: Robinson & Duke Cemeteries
Here is the Website for the Arkansas Gravestone Project. We do basically what you are doing for Find A Grave but I also upload my photo not just to Find A Grave but this website as well. Hope this helps. It's free to become a volunteer.

Hi Libby,

Thanks for transferring Kelly's memorial page over to me. That was very nice of you to take the time to put it together.

RE: Robinson & Duke Cemeteries
Libby you might want to let Tootie of the Arkansas Gravestone Project know this then. That why we can respect their privacy at the Duke Cemetery located next to the school. Thanks for educating me on the Hartje Cemetery I had a hunch it was when I saw that a Duke had married into the Hartje family. I have been keeping the Hartje cemetery up to date.

I have a certain part of Robinson Cemetery logged already on here. I would like to finish it to honor the veterans who are buried there. One Veteran's grave the marker is facing the hedges so I had to really try to get a picture of that one. I want to try and finish Robinson because I want to help others do their family trees as well as get pictures of the stones before that are too far gone to read. So I do this to help preserve. Thank you for sharing that info. I have some mullatos in my Mack family as well as the Bilbo and other branches of my family. So I understand where you are coming from.

Robinson & Duke Cemeteries
Libby I have only been able to get almost half of Robinson Cemetery which is an all black cemetery done so far and going to try and finish it. But there is another Black cemetery located on Military Rd. just past the Hartje Cemetery (which is on the left right after Nutters Chapel) and located on the right about where they are building the new school. So if you want you can try and log that one. Just a thought for you since you were part of the black cemetery organization.

RE: William Simpson in Macedonia
You're welcome Libby. I go to Macedonia every year and place flags at the veterans graves and check for new graves. Plus Mr. Day who is the caretaker of the Cemetery also lets me know of new burials so that I can get a picture of the grave to log it.

This person hasn't passed away yet is why there is no gravestone for them. So just letting you know why your request can't be fulfilled.
