"Gone But Not Forgotten"

Original Listing February 28, 2007, by Rosa Cline

Updated July 4, 2007


This is a listing I have made from obits that I have saved that I have gotten from various Arkansas newspapers. (Each person here has some kind of Arkansas tie.) The first listing below is one I have made that is an alphabetical listing by cemeteries, this listing is the only place where I have noted where the person is buried at. Also in this listing beside each name I have noted if I have an obit, a headstone photo, or an actual photo for that person. Under the cemetery listing is the actual transcriptions of the obits, and they are listed in alphabetical order by last name.  


If you see anyone that I have an obit for and would like a copy, I will be happy to share that with you or you share extra data please feel free to contact me. However, please have the respect to not contact me to complain when I don’t have what you request.  I will be trying to update this listing as I have time for, and when I do I will put an “*” beside the newest data entered. I also try and not list anyone that their death is more recent than 6 mths or so, unless I personally knew them. Out of respect for them and their family I try and wait half a year for their mourning process. So most “new” deaths will not be listed. However if you have a family member you want added I will add them in.


These listings are made from either obits or data given to me by other family or researchers.  I will be more than happy to share with you what information I have on the people listed below, but I cannot do physical look ups. If you would like to send me data on your family or friends buried at these cemeteries, I would be more than happy to accept and add the data into my listings. Or if you have driving directions, the town or anything else about the cemetery listed. (As my data comes from obits) Please feel free to contact me.


I hope this listing helps these people to always be remembered. To try and help folks to always be remembered when they have gone on before us is the main reason I do what I do. And helping folks find family or friends in the process is a good plus as well.
