Writing and genealogy research is one of our activities. Linda has in the past, restored old photos and design photo displayes for framing. Genealogy research was a pursuit since 1978 but has occupied much of my time as of 2000; but my first entries were written before 1963 in my Bible. I am very familiar with Benton and Washington Co, Ark. and some of the cemeteries in our area. We enjoy finding old graves stones of family and recording them for family and friends. |
NOTE: REGARDING OBITUARIES AND PHOTOS POSTED. PERMISSION HAS BEEN RECEIVED FOR THOSE SENT TO ME BY INDIVIDUALS, FUNERAL HOMES, FAMILY MEMBERS AND NEWSPAPERS OUTSIDE OUR AREA. THOSE FOUND ON THE INTERNET AND FROM LOCAL PUBLIC LIBRARY NEWSPAPER MICROFILM FILES ARE FOR PUBLIC USE. MANY OF THE SAME OBITUARIES MAY BE FOUND AT ANCESTRY.COM, NEWSPAPER ARCHIVES FOR EACH STATE AND OTHER SOURCES SUCH AS NEWSPAPERARCHIVE.COM. WE DO NOT POST CURRENT OBITUARIES UNLESS IT IS OUR OWN RELATED FAMILY MEMBER. IN ADDITION, WE HAVE PAID FOR THE USE OF A FEW.
Our Elm Springs Cemetery project may be found on Ancestry.com under the tree name "Elm Springs Civil War Vets and Families". Some families have been extended because little was found at Ancestry. This is an on-going project given that there are about 50 plus vets buried in the Cemetery. We do this as an act of kindness and to document missing history for those families.

I looked through my records, but did not find anymore info sorry
|Carole||RE: Mt. Zion Cemetery, Sulphur City|
We're so happy you visited Mt. Zion Cemetery again. The Boy Scouts did a great job, didn't they? Thanks also to Alvin Derby and Gene Bradshaw for repairing three stones that were broken (at their own expense). We now have some local descendants who will keep the cemetery mowed on a regular basis: cousins, Sue and Jimmy Carter. Postmaster, Mike Whitehead has the rest of the fence and he and his son Nate, will put it up as soon as they can. Mt. Zion is not lost!

|PARK||RE: Francis Lola Armstrong|
I'm a bit confused since this is regarding Francis Lola Armstrong not William Roach and in your previous email you said quote: "The completer obit was published in the Northwest Ark Times on Sunday, 05 April 1981".

|Frosty Bear||William H. Stipe|
Dennis, very possibly your information for place of birth for W. H. Stipe may be correct. However, what I posted was what his daughter Lucille told me and I hate to change it. Are the Stipe's your family members, if so I would be glad to transfer the memorial to you. Please let me know
|Sammy Boyd, Genealogist||RE: Re: Corp Joe C Stipe|
Thanks a million!
|KC MO||Martha Pearson obit|
Dennis, I saw your request but can't figure out how to respond to you so I thought I would post here. There are two different Martha Pearson's buried in Elm Springs. But YES please feel free to post any additional information that you have. I am sure people would be happy to have whatever you have found. Thank you for all you do for findagrave.

Death cert looks like it said 1865 changed to 1866. The tombstone says 1865.
