the Texarkana USA Quarterly, Volume 2, Number 2, Summer
1975, tombstone inscriptions for this cemetery were published.
At the time Mrs. Elizabeth (Scott) Wilburn canvassed this
cemetery, the grave below was not marked and no evidence was
visible that a grave was even there. On May 26, 1979, Mrs.
Wilburn revisited this cemetery and found this marker erected.
"Evidently," she says, " a relative has
erected a stone recently for this grave." This stone
was erected to the right of the grave for Marcellus McCurry.
