Lone Rock, Baxter County, Arkansas
Submitted & © July 2008 by Emmit Dolan Acklin
The original survey of this cemetery was made on July 7, 1988, by Emmit Dolan Acklin. Even though there has not been any addition burials, the survey has been revised since then to include additional information collected from various sources and the inclusion of one additional recently erected marker.
The Cockrum Cemetery is on private property off Baxter County Road 111 a short distance from the Lone Rock for which the community was named. The last recorded burial was in the late 1920’s. There are 12 marked graves in the cemetery and it appears as if there are probably several other graves based upon depressions in the ground or placement of field stones that had served as grave markers.
Additional information was gleaned from printed obituaries or from descendants of the families, and that information is included, but placed inside parentheses. That includes one death date that doesn’t exactly agree with the inscription.
