NEWLY DISCOVERED TOMBSTONES IN WALDRON
Scott County, Arkansas
The five small and two larger tombstone bases pictured above, as well as the five tombstones listed below, were found
this week in a front yard in Waldron. For years the stones have been face down and used for a walkway, the residents
of the home having no idea they were anything other than a concrete walk. When they decided to remove the walkway,
they discovered these were tombstones. At this point it is unknown whether this was a small cemetery that fell into
disuse at some long ago time or whether the stones were moved there for some unknown reason. The deceased, other than
the two young Crump children, seemingly had no connection with one another. The five stones were inscribed:
Fannie T. Hunt

until November 1896 when they moved to Cauthron.
