Calvary Cemetery Tombstone Inscriptions 2006
Compiled by Gail Ashbrook and Elizabeth C. Davis
The land for Calvary Cemetery was purchased in 1881, but tombstones of early Irish immigrants who settled in Hot Springs and became members of the first Catholic Parish, are dated starting in the 1870s. There are numerous unmarked graves in the oldest block. It is a cemetery of crosses and contains many handsome older tombstones skillfully inscribed with Catholic religious symbols and interesting epitaphs.
Captioned photographs, a brief history note, information about unreadable inscriptions and the meaning of symbols depicted, make an unusually attractive cemetery book. A map section and an alphabetical index complement the block by block, row by row inscription list, making a user-friendly reference work. The Church of St. Mary manages the cemetery. The price of this new compilation is $20 (plus $3 postage and handling). Pub1300

I will check the book that shows the marked burials in Calvary to see if he is listed. If he is not, he is probably that unmarked grave next to William and Mary C. Parker.

I went to Calvary Cemetery in Hot Springs this week to attempt to find the tombstone for Mr. Parker and did not find it...that doesn't mean it wasn't there - just wasn't able to find this time.
I am wondering if his name was listed on a prior reading of the cemetery or if you got your information from family records. That may help me to find it.
I did add two Parkers - a William E. and Mary C. Parker in the cemetery. Are they any relation? There was a spot to the left of their graves that was unmarked or unfilled.
