Biographical/Historical Note

The Arkansas Sesquicentennial Celebration was in 1986, commemorating the 150th anniversary of Arkansas’s admission into the Union with a series of statewide and local events held to honor the anniversary. The celebration sparked a renewed interest in Arkansas and local history, as well as in genealogy across the state. County maps showing the locations of various cemeteries and grave-sites were created to help researchers in locating the resting places of their ancestors.
