Lee County, Arkansas Cemeteries


McNulty Cemetery

Aubrey, Arkansas




Location: This cemetery is located on Hwy 78 about 2 miles west of Aubrey.  It is on the north side of Hwy 78, west of Lee Road 163.


I transcribed this cemetery on October 30, 2005 with the help of Andrew and Matt.  There were 3 plots sectioned into large squares by pipe.  I will make a note beside each name as to whether they were in Section 1, 2, or 3 for reference.  Click here to see an overview of the section that I labeled as ‘Section 3’. The stone visible is that of W.C. Lamkins.  The cemetery has been abandoned for a while.  If you have any further information about this cemetery, please contact me.


On November 4, 2005 Jane Hartley submitted some additional names collected from various sources.  I have listed them below and marked them with an (*) asterisk.   Mrs. Jacolyn Foreman Martin (a descendent of the McAnulty’s) submitted some of these names as being buried here.  Nancy Apple received a copy of the list as she is related to the Foreman’s.  J.T. and M.A.’s eldest son was buried in Oklahoma.  John T. Shackelford had a sister and a wife named Mary Ann.  Mary Ann Brown Shackelford later married a Mr. Wells and they are buried in Spring Creek Cemetery.  Although the markers have Lamkins, the family spelled it Lampkins.


On April 29, 2007 William Calvin Lamkins submitted some additional information about the Lamkins family, “My dad, Herbert K. Lamkins, and other family members built the pipe fences many years ago.  Our last name has been Lamkins since at least the 1840s when Allen William Lamkins homesteaded just east of Newport, AR in Jackson County.  Lampkins, Lamkin, and Lambkins are common misspellings. My dad's father was William Joseph Lamkins who is buried at McNulty Cemetery. My grandfather William Joseph was born 5/7/1863 at Newport and died 10/22/1934 near Aubrey where he was a farmer.  My dad is still alive and will be 88 this summer.  My name is William Calvin Lamkins, partially named for my paternal grandfather and great-grandfather Lamkins.  I live in Fayetteville, AR.   Gracy Lamkins was the wife of William Joseph's son, James Burl Lamkins.  Gracy died giving birth to their third child, Nancy, who has lived in Pine Bluff many years.  Her two older bothers are still alive - Herbert Allen (Sacramento, CA) and Burl Jr. Lamkins (Malvern, AR).



If you know of anyone else buried here, and would like to add their name, please contact me.  I can also create a link for you to any of these names if you find someone that belongs to your family.  The information presented is as correct as possible, however you may want to verify its accurateness.
