I am writing you to let you know about a cemetery that has mostly been destroyed by someone. It is on Swan Lake Rd off Ar. Hwy 88 abt.16 miles SE of Altheimer, near Cornerstone, which is in Jefferson County, Ark.

The precious few stones left are mostly those of folks unknown to me but were found while looking for our Grandmother who died while living at Swan Lake.  The last names on the 5 left are all different. It appears to have been a nice size cemetery, and several indents around this site are still visible. This has got to have been done by big farm equipment. It had the misfortune to be bordering a huge crop field. It also had two huge trees in it at one time. The bases have been burned and the charred remains are still there. It does not appear that these were pushed up to allow for a crop, so I have no idea why they would honor the area but pill the stones. I hope it remains there, and I will place these photos on find-a-grave for future families who may want to locate their love ones..

The bottom of this stone reads; NKE Violo Temple 983, Lake Farm, Ark.

The bottom of this stone reads; Morning Starr Chamber, 2560 Swan Lake, Ark.

The bottom of this stone reads; ? of Sweden Chamber, Sweden, Ark.

(The rest of this stone was broken off and none of the pieces were to be found)

The top of the stone F C B inside lines and circled with K of P under it.
