I have heard of this cemetery and had the same reaction. Did some research and can't remember what I found so it must NOT have been much. Obit for Lee Miller CothranI is so familiar - must have read before too - maybe that caused me to look up the cemetery. Seemed odd that he was born in TX, died in NV, and buried in AR. He would have to have allied family lines in AR. Wife Susan lived in Blytheville but that is a military base and maybe 150 miles to Pineville. Wonder what Susan's maiden name was and she might have been AR connection?
Seems like this was about the time I was sifting through census and found some Harnons that solved a mystery parents of children living with my GGF Bookout.Sam W. Harmon m. Mary Ester Bookout (GGF's daug)His mother is Lena Lavon Hammond Cothran? wonder if that is a typo and should be Harmon? I remember having that same thought when I found Hammonds on census.
Sorry I don't remember more. - Marsha
