Subject: [ARIZARD] Cemeteries of Izard County
Date: Tue, 3 Nov 2009 18:48:25 -0800 (PST)

While it is quiet . . . I came up revisited a project.
I make an effort to list the cemeteries in my files (like many others do). Sometimes feel frustrated trying to guess where cemeteries are located, so tried to come up with a tool.
Made a list from findagrave that has flaws and thought others might like it too.
If anyone finds errors, please post and later I will post a revised list.
Used GPS to look up some, had to guess at towns that are closest, but from what I can tell, some of them are so isolated that one must travel other roads to reach them.
Example:  Lyons Creek Cem. – NE of Guion (might have to go SE out of Melbourne)
When in doubt, I use "Unknown Cem. - Izard Co., AR" - without a town, but would like to have a town as reference when possible.
Some things I just don't believe . .
Example: Franklin has 4 Cem  ? ? ? - it is on a highway, seems small for 4 cemeteries?
Hills Chapel Cem./ McGavock Confederate Cem./ Wolf Family Cem./Roberts Cem.
Didn't see a cemetery for Iuka either.
Contribute what you can & I will post again in a few weeks with up dates.
