|Bio and Links|
ABOUT ME: Gina Caperton Ervin - daughter of Rohena Mackey and Bobby Jack Caperton of Fort Smith, Arkansas. I have degrees in sociology and counseling from the University of Arkansas and am fascinated with families of origin, ancestry/genealogy, European migration, early American history, and Scottish/English cultural heritage. I live in Fayetteville, Arkansas and have collaborated with my parents to document the memorials of our loved ones and ancestors. |
MY CONTRIBUTIONS: The memorials that I manage are mostly those with family connections. The majority are relatives located in the Steep Hill, Cross and Douglass Cemeteries in Sebastian County, Arkansas, particularly from the Caperton/Mackey/Bugg/McAlester(McAllister)/Starnes families. Others are connected to me through my husband, David Ervin, and are located in cemeteries in Franklin County, Arkansas. Those families are primarily Ervin/Delaney/Pritchett related. However, I also documented all graves previously unrecorded in Steep Hill Cemetery in Sebastian County, Arkansas. Memorials were established for all stones located if one did not exist. Photographs were added to all existing memorials without photos. Second photographs were added to memorials if pictures taken for the full cemetery census were more clear.
The Steep Hill project was extremely time intensive but important and enjoyable. I have 12 grandparents of various lines buried at Steep Hill. With that and the cemetery originating on family land pioneered in the early/mid-1800's (William Jackson McAllister - my GGG grandfather), my interest in establishing a full-record for historical reasons was personal. In 2012, I was elected to the Steep Hill Cemetery board. Since that time, I have tried to document bios (to the greatest extent possible) on the oldest individuals buried at Steep Hill.
I am making every effort to identify and add relationship links and personal histories on the memorials I manage. I want my children, grandchildren, their children, and others to know their family roots. If you are a relative and would like to help, I WELCOME any opportunity to add information, pictures, make corrections, etc., or to transfer memorials for your additions and care if you are more closely related. I believe memorials are important records and should honor subjects to the greatest extent possible. I do not view them as territory and would never hold them in limbo (or hostage) if they can be made better. I believe it is ideal when memorials include rich content reflect the person's life, work, family, personal interests, origin and migration (if applicable). It's about the individuals being memorialized and their descendants, friends, and loved ones, not me. Often, the person best able to honor the individual is not me, and family ALWAYS comes first. My e-mail contact information is noted below if you would like to make contact.
Also, you can find Steep Hill Cemetery and website information with cemetery history on Facebook!
Sincerely - Gina Caperton Ervin

|DeMaster||RE: Dr. Thomas Hopkins Roughton|
Gina, It is presumed that he is buried beside his wife, Harriet Ewell-Roughton in Springtown Cemetery in Springtown, Benton, Arkansas, USA.. however, this is a strict assumption as no documentation or evidence has been located as yet. There are many researchers trying to decipher the Many Thomas Roughton's and locate his exact burial. There has been no definitive answer to date.

EARLY SKAGIT PIONEER CALLED; SETTLED IN '71. -
HAMILTON, Sept. 30. -- Harvey Davis, one of the best known of Hamilton's pioneer residents, passed away at his home west of town at 1:30 p.m Wednesday, after an illness of about a year. He was born near Nashville, Tenn., March 6, 1851. He came west in 1871, returning to Arkansas in 1884, where he married Miss Polly Roughton May 19 of that year. Immediately after his marriage he brought his bride west, and the young couple traveled up the Skagit river in a canoe to the ranch near Hamilton upon which they have lived since. Mr. Davis is survived by his widow, three children, Maurice and Cauncey of Hamilton, and Mrs. Myrtle Harmon of Harmon, of Phoenix, Arizona, and two grandchildren, Aleck Pflaum and Harvey Dell Harmon. All were with him at the last, his daughter having been summoned from her Arizona home when it became apparent that the end was approaching. Funeral services will be held at the Hamilton church at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, with interment in the Hamilton Cemetery.
Obituary originally published in the Bellingham Herald newspaper of Bellingham, Whatcom, Washington, USA on 30 Sep 1921.
James Robert Harvey Davis' wife, Polly Adelaide Roughton is my husband's Great Grand Aunt.

|Patsy Steele||RE: Steep Hill Cemetery Gravestone Cleaning Project|
Would love to be able to help with the upcoming work on the headstones at Steep Hill but I am disabled. My health has been rapidly declining. What I do for Find-A-Grave now is done on my computer. I try to keep my listings updated and create memorial pages for people that are dear to my heart. I hope there will be a good number turn out to help and the weather is nice.

Annie Pepper still has several grand children living in the Fort Smith area (I live in Jefferson City, Mo.). I am going down there in a couple of weeks and I will see some of them. Let me talk to them about this and I will get back to you about it. I know that at least of couple of the kids live in Pacola, Ok. You are much appreciated by this family for everything you do. Thank you again.
