|Tonya Newton||RE: Cummings Grave Stones - War Eagle Cemetery|
You are very welcome. It was really a pleasure. This cemetery is quite small and is situated on a beautiful piece of property. I don't know if you have ever been to this area of Arkansas but we are in the Ozark Mountains (not large mountains but beautiful). War Eagle is a little area on the War Eagle River. It once was a small community but now there are only a few homes there, one of which sits on a very large (acres and acres) piece of property and the owner still operates a historical grist mill on the river there. They also allow the largest arts and crafts show in northwest Arkansas to happen there twice a year. To get to this cemetery, you have to go on to that person's piece of property by accessing a gate and traveling an old, bumpy, winding road that travels along the river for just a short way. Anyway, if you ever have a chance to travel to this area, I highly recommend you visit the mill and the cemetery. Its just lovely. :) Have a great day!

I have posted the photos for the Cummings' graves that you requested. I enjoyed to trip out to this cemetery. It was a beautiful day for it. :) -Tonya Newton
|Tonya Newton||War Eagle Cemetery Photo Request|
My name is Tonya Newton. I live in the about 20 miles from the War Eagle Cemetery where you have requested photos. I would be happy to take a ride out to the beautiful piece of property where this cemetery is, but it will not be until Sunday of this week as we are currently receiving a lot of rain in the area and have been all week so the river that this cemetery is very near is likely to be quite swollen this week. Also, if memory serves, this cemetery is on private property. The owner of the property use to let people drive back into the area on an old rough dirt road but I haven't been out there in years so I am not sure if he/she still allows it, but I will certainly go out there to see this weekend. I love that area, there is an old river grist mill out there that we visit quite often. If another volunteer offers to go get this picture, please let me know as they may be closer and know more about the property. -Tonya Newton

Hi, I have been trying to find a Levi Murphy from southern Ill. I found your Levi from Jerseyville and buried in Alburn Cemetery. That is so strange as my Levi's wife Mary "Hunter" Murphy is also from Jerseyville area and also buried in Alburn Cemetery along w/her daughter and granddaughter. But I don't know where Levi is. Could there be a connection? My Levi was born Oct 1, 1846...I think in Kentucky. Well, just a thought...It's a long shot I know....Thanks Jenny

|Robert Norris||Transfering Memorials|
Hi. Glad you liked the photos added today and the addition of your uncle and aunts memorials. I will transfer those two new memorials to you, so you can update as you like. Robert.
|Dania Ward||RE: Levi and Elizabeth Murphy|
I am heading out there today since the sun is out. I should have this fulfilled by this afternoon. Have a wonderful day!
