COSTEN IN POPE COUNTY ARKANSAS

OLD LAKE GRAVEYARD
DOVER, POPE COUNTY ARKANSAS

Attention: Anyone having ancestors buried at Old Lake Graveyard, Dover, Pope County
Arkansas, this cemetery needs your help. Oldest "known" or proven buried was in 1830, several
Civil War Veterans are also buried here. Descendants of those interred there are currently
involved in legal dispute with land owners, and in the meantime the cemetery is close to being
completely lost! Markers have been removed, damaged or destroyed. The fence was moved
without consent of family members, and this caused destruction or complete loss of graves and
markers. We are trying to put this cemetery on the Historical Register to prevent further
damage and total destruction. To contribute to Old Lake Graveyard Assoc. Fund, send donations
to:
River Valley Bank PO Box 1420 Russellville AR 72811-1420
or for more information on how you can help, contact me directly at LShearin@ticnet.com
Thanks for your interest and support!
