Gibson Cemetery, Washington County, Arkansas

Cincinnati, Arkansas
Washington County

The Gibson Cemetery is a very small cemetery that is no longer in use. It is located directly in the front yard of a private residence, and has been taken care of by the landowner. This is an old cemetery, and some of the stones are worn or damaged to the point of being unreadable.

To find this cemetery from Fayetteville, Arkansas, travel west on Highway 62 through the towns of Farmington, Prairie Grove, and Lincoln. Look for the junction of 62 and Highway 59 at Summers, AR. Turn north on 59 toward Cincinnati, AR. One record describes the cemetery as being "1 1/4 mile south of Cincinnati on 59, on the west side of the road". If you see County Road 74 and County Road 814, you've gone too far. Be very respectful. This cemetery is situated right in someone's front yard. Once you see the yard, you can't miss the tombstones. I came with someone who knew the property owner, but no one was home.

This transcription was recorded by Shannon Seyler and Dianna Payne on September 22, 2008. Please write with any questions or comments.

An asterisk (*) denotes burials that are said to be in this cemetery, but whose headstones we did not personally record. It doesn't mean that these people aren't there, but simply that we didn't see their graves on this particular visit. Some of these stones were quite difficult to read.
