Davenport Crossing Cemetery
Lawrence County, Arkansas
Researched and Photographed by Tootie Sharp Dennis and Jane Sharp Odom
Submitted May 24, 2007
This cemetery is located 1.5 miles North of Alicia, Lawrence County. County Road 739 turns east off the highway across the tracks. I parked there and walked the tracks to get access to the Cemetery. It is located on a small hill, easily seen from the highway. The tall stone is all you can see of the stones from the highway. The Cemetery is located between highway 67 and the railroad tracks. I found only 7 stones. I searched carefully for others with a sturdy walking cane I took with me. The hill is totally overgrown and was very difficult to access. It took several photos of each stone to get a good one from any angle. This is the first of 2 over views. This one was taken at the beginning of the incline of the hill.
My aunt, Jane Sharp Odom, gave me a lot of information on different cemeteries over the period of the month that we spent auditing these cemeteries. She took all the notes as I photographed. She is 88 years old!

VOWELL, Roy – b. 8 July 1887; d. 5 August 1888 – child of J.T. & L. Vowell - Ethel, the lady at the library in Walnut Ridge, helped us a lot on finding the cemeteries. I found no other stones. Perhaps this child is on the stone with the other two Vowell childrn, Roy and Monnie. The stone was very hard to read and there could have been three names listed. There is a very small stone at the base of the double stone for Floy & Monnie.
