Cossart Cemetery

Est. ca 1865

 

This cemetery is located Southeast of Calion, Union County, Arkansas.  It is on private property in dense woods & is hard to find.

The late Lillian Stevenson McGowen gave me a copy of a survey she made of the cemetery in the late 1960's.  I tried a couple of times to locate it,

but I was unsuccessful.   *Details about parents, spouses from my personal files

There are many unmarked graves.  The cemetery is neglected and grown over.

It is located on private property.  The details of this cemetery were given to me by

the late Lillian McGowen Craig from a survey she did back in the 1990's & some

of her personal info on some of the people buried here.
