Arkansas Cemeteries

Dobbs Cemetery

Dobbs, Crawford County, Arkansas

Contributed by Joyce Bailey June 14, 2002

Transcriptions from several markers located in the Dobbs Cemetery. I have photos of each of these as well. This cemetery is landlocked by private property, and the current property owner refuses to allow access to the cemetery. Sheriff escort is required for safe entry.  There are many other graves in this cemetery which have been documented in History in Headstones however, having personally transcribed the ones included herein, I can attest that History in Headstones did not include the entire dates for most. Many of the markers are broken, illegible or missing. I was not able to inventory the entire cemetery due to time constraints. I hope to return again one day but for now I would like to share what I have been able to obtain.
