(Once Known as the Old Indian Cemetery)
Scott County, Arkansas

This cemetery is located southwest of Coaldale and is in Scott County, very near the LeFlore County, Oklahoma line. It is about two miles east of the Loving Church on Loving Road and we were originally made aware of its existence by Mr. Bo Roop of Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2006. Surveyed & photographed by Shawn and Heather Epperson in March 2009. If you wish a copy of any of these photos, please contact Delaine Edwards and it will be sent via email. Please use "Davenport Cemetery" as the subject of your message.

A.E. Campbeel stone is broken and her parents names are gone. This name may be a misspelling of Campbell. Inscribed on the stone is “Just as the Morning of her life was opening into day her young lovely spirit passed from earth and grief away.”

B.O. Roop writes that "Loving Post Office was established Dec. 2, 1908 with Isaac Ward serving as Postmaster. Isaac Ward was buried in the Davenport Cemetery and his grave is not marked. This was told to me by his son Frank Ward in the Billingsley Nursing Home in Heavener in the 1960's." Isaac is found on the 1900 Scott Co. census in Brawley Township, born Jan. 1857 in Arkansas. By 1910 he was in LeFlore Co., OK.

The illegible stone of the wife of L.B. Kinslow was for Gertrude Loving who married Leroy B. Kinslow in Scott County in 1890. She was a daughter of John Loving, buried here, and Amanda (King) Loving, buried at the nearby Loving Cemetery. Gertrude was born November 1874 (according to the 1900 census) and died between 1900 and 1908. Her children were listed on the 1910 and later census records as Indian.
