I started researching my grandmother's family (Holley) in Van Buren Co., AR, and it just grew!

Thank you to JoAnn Bradford for giving me permission to enter her Van Buren County, AR, inventories.

I will happily transfer management of your relatives' memorials to you.

I am immensely grateful to everyone who contributes to Find A Grave. Please let me know if I need to make corrections.

If I have used one of your photos, please note that some of the source citations got zapped when I uploaded to Please let me know if you find a photo with a missing citation.

If I have used one of your photos on that you do not want posted there, please let me know. (being a pay site) is a sore subject for some folks. I am not trying to "steal" photos or go against anyone's wishes. I am merely trying to help make information widely available.

Thanks to everyone who contributes!

John in San Antonio, TX

Hi John,can't remember if I have gotten back to you since I finally got the information for Mattie Tackett Sweeney or not so if I have just mark up one for getting oldLOL! She is listed as Mattie May Tackett Smith. I got the info from her grandson and created the memorial. Smith was a 2nd. or 3rd husband.

RE: Frank H. Sweeney
Hi John,
Finally found her grave and created a memorial for her at the Higden McLehaney Cemetery. She was listed under the last name Smith. I didn't remember her marrying the last time.
Have a good day!

RE: Frank H. Sweeney
She is buried at the Higden McLehaney Cemetery,according to her daughter Catherine, who is my husband's aunt.(she was married to Luther Chalk) But, I have not been able to find her grave or headstone. I have looked several times and yet to find it. When the weather warms up I am going to look again. I didn't ask if she has a headstone but I can't see her not having one. Mattie was also a sister to Aunt Zora's(chalk) husband, Killies Tackett.
