From a newspaper article about the cemetery written by my late grandmother,
Neva Barnes McMurry, in 1984:

Ada Smith Shook was responsible for having the stones of William Clayborn Smith,
his son James Smith, Catharine Smith Allen, Beulah Smith, and Lena Smith moved
to the Smith burial lots in Farmington Cemetery.

There are also eight members of the Ingram family buried in the Pettigrew
Cemetery.  Sam Ingram worked for the Pettigrews, Smiths and Allens.  Sometime
in the period 1858-1860, seven of his children and their mother, Elvira, died from
diphtheria, all within three or four days.  They had to be buried quickly, so trenches
were dug in the southwest corner of the Pettigrew cemetery.  A few fieldstone
markers were placed there, and a larger one marked the mother’s resting place.

A year or two later, Sam Ingram and his surviving sons, Tom and Jake, moved to
the Siloam Springs area.  Sam was buried in the Sheffield Cemetery.  Tom and
Jake are buried in the Norwood Cemetery.
