Oark Cemetery

Oark, Johnson County, Arkansas

"Gone But Not Forgotten"

Submitted March 21, 2003, by Rosa Cline

Updated November 4, 2006

 

This is a partial listing of people interred at this cemetery.

 

(NOTE: A friend of mine, he and his wife, has in the last few years transcribed this entire cemetery. So out of respect for him we will not "redo" what they have done.  They have published their findings along with additional information in a book about the cemetery.  So out of respect for them, along with us living to far away to do a complete transcription, my listing will be from obits I have gotten, or from data people have given to me about their friends or family that they would like seen in my transcription.  Any questions are welcome and we'll try our best to answer for you.)

 

I do have obits for some of them, if anyone would like a copy. I have made an alphabetical listing before the actual transcriptions below. Beside each name I have noted if I have an obit ( obit ) , a headstone photo (hd pic) , or an actual photo ( pic ), or newspaper article ( art )   for that person. If you have found my name with a note of having an obit on a previous listing I can not guarantee I still have it unless it is noted below. I still have lots of things I’ve not found and added in. But I can not guarantee anyone copies of anything I have, but I will share with you’ll what I have. So if you would like me to share with you, or you share extra data please feel free to contact me. However, please have the respect to not contact me to complain when I don’t have what you request.  I will be trying to update this listing as I have time for, and when I do I will put an “*” beside the newest data entered. (Even if the name has already been there from a listing before if I have * beside I have added data or corrected data there.) I also try and not list anyone that their death is more recent than 6 mths or so, unless I personally knew them. Out of respect for them and their family I try and wait half a year for their mourning process. So most “new” deaths will not be listed. However if you have a family member you want added I will add them in.

 

I live too far away from this cemetery to actually do any look ups. These listings are made from either obits or data given to me by other family or researchers.  I will be more than happy to share with you what information I have on the people listed below, but I cannot do physical look ups. If you would like to send me data on your family or friends buried at this cemetery, I would be more than happy to accept and add the data into my listings. Please feel free to contact me. If you don’t find the information on this transcription,

go to the Find-A-Grave transcription. There may be more information there.

 

I hope this listing helps these people to always be remembered. To try and help folks to always be remembered when they have gone on before us is the main reason I do what I do. And helping folks find family or friends in the process is a good plus as well.

 

DRIVING DIRECTIONS: Going from Clarksville toward Salus on Highway 21 North a county road turns toward left.  A sign on the side of the highway says 12 miles to Oark.  The county road is mostly dirt until you get to the Catalpa community.  Go about 1 to 2 miles dwon the paved road from Catalpa to get to Oark.  The cemetery is on the right side of the highway off on a county road that turns right before you get into Oark.
