McArthur Cemetery

 

McArthur Cemetery, Desha County, Clayton Township: just east of Highway 1 on Bayou Macon Road.

 

(It is believed that the first grave in this cemetery was that of Sarah Malinda Stephenson Stroud.  She was born in Mississippi in 1825, moved to Desha County, Ark., in 1867 after the Civil War when her husband, Joseph P. Stroud, died and was buried near the river in Bolivar County, Miss.  They were the parents of George W. Stroud, born Jan. 6, 1860 in Bolivar County and died at McArthur Jan. 1943.  G.W. is buried in the Tillar Cemetery, Drew County, with his second wife Mary Frances Harvey (1865-1943).
