Fluty Cemetery Transcription - May 2001

This transcription of headstone inscriptions at Fluty Cemetery, Baxter County, Arkansas, was made by Marianne Cowan Pyeatt in May of 2001. I hope that my transcription is a true representation of the inscriptions to be found here.

This list is presented in the order in which I transcribed it - Starting in the back left corner and working down the row to the right then back up the next row from right to left, etc. I will be making a map of the cemetery and will divide it into sections and note the section, row, etc., in order to further identify the location. I will also post a photo of this map on this website so that you can see who is buried in proximity to whom. This listing will be typed as a listing. To see the actual placement of information on the stone, please see the page for that individual which will list the inscription as it appeared.

The metal funeral home marker for Francis Thomas, who died at age 93 in 1980, has disappeared since 1981 when Donald Hubbell recorded the information. If someone can help locate the spot where Mrs. Thomas is buried - we would appreciate it. Also, the metal funeral home marker for Coy Horton remains, though it has been dislodged from it's correct location. We also seek assistance in replacing it to the propery place. Fieldstones mark the graves of an infant daughter of Granville and Caroline Reed (to the left of Caroline's marker); an infant of Andrew and Pearly Foster (behind the Reed infant); and the grave of Tan Reed who was the son of Lunny Reed (buried behind the Foster infant). No markers exist for the children (at least two) of Wayne and Geneva Talburt Estes who were said to have been born dead ('blue babies' - RH factor) and buried here. Pearly Lee Estes Crotts identified the graves as the second and third fieldstone marked graves between the entrance gate and the pavillion. The first grave, she says, is that of the infant of Leahmon and Donna Estes. Also, Joe Bill Bentley son of Clara Bentley died at 6 wks of age of pneumonia and is buried without a marker. Roxie Cotter was told that the grave is straight out (to the right) of Albert Choate's grave and against the fence. We are not certain if the fence is still where it was at that time. Several children of Charles Felton killed by influenza are also in unmarked graves. The Earl Hanks child (son) buried under the small slab near the pavillion was said to have had a terminal illness of which the parents were aware (RH Factor was suggested - though I believe that those babies die before or shortly after birth) and only lived to about the age of two. There is no headstone for this child, only the slab. It is said that a family traveling through the area many years ago lost a daughter to illness and she was buried against the left fence (when standing at the entrance). Some of the 'old timers' remarked that a while after her burial a wild rose bush grew in that exact spot. I have to wonder if this grave is in the location where a fair sized fieldstone lies leaned against the fence. It is in the general area pointed out to me for the child's grave - in the area of the walnut trees and all the way against the fence. According to Pauline Hodges, there were two graves marked with fieldstones which were for a mother and daughter. These graves are outside of the front fence between the fence and the driveway and the fieldstones are routinely removed and cars are parked in that area. Also, Pauline recalls many markers now gone that used to exist in the cemetery when she helped care for the cemetery in years past. A few mentioned where three headstones to the left of Deborah Caldwell's grave (if facing the entrance gate) and a large number of fieldstone markers which were removed over the years. Sometime between the cemetery inventory that was taken by the Cameo Club in 1968 and the one taken by Donald Hubbell, Jr, in 1981, the marker for Margaret Ward who died in 1915 was removed. According to the "Baxter Bulletin", Clyde Shipley one year old son of Mr. and Mrs. T. M. Shipley died Oct 31, 1909, and was buried at Fluty.
