McLemore Family Information Arkansas
Posted by: Brian Walker (ID *****9407) Date: May 27, 2007 at 11:52:32
  of 1307

I am not related to this family, but am sharing information that I have gathered while doing my own family research and genealogy. I study migration patterns, and by this am able to break thru the brick walls that others have been unable to find information on.

My hope is that this information will help others who do not have access to all the files and census records, or who can not afford access to this information. Good luck and I hope this will help someone.

***********************************************************

The Old Newman Cemetery is located on the crossroads Old Military
Road and Pigeon Roost (now Hwy. 212 West from Star City) Road. There
were a lot of travelers coming through that area. They would usually
stop there and camp for the night.

One night, a group of travelers were camped there and had a great big
campfire built. Children were playing around it, and one young boy
fell into the fire while trying to jump over it. He died and was the
first one to be buried there. I do not know who owned the property at
the time, but, at one time, the cemetery was about 2-3 acres.

Markers and headstones has been destroyed over the years, so no one
knows who all is buried there. The NEWMAN family still have
headstones, so that is why it is known as the Old Newman Cemetery.
