Old Bethel, Red Star, Madison County, AR
"Gone but not forgotten"

Old Bethel  is 1.3 miles from Red Star on Madison County road 141.  When you turn on this road it is dirt, you will come to a "Y" in the road and follow the right hand side road.  (When this transcription was done there was a sign with three cemeteries on it pointing the way)  The cemetery is just down the road.

This transcription was done on April 8, 2001.  We are trying to collect as many obits of these people as possible.  So if anyone would like to contact us about or to share an obit we would appreciate it.  clinefam@yournet.com  We feel like if we all share with one another then these people's memories will always be.

Thanks, Robert and Rosa
