Sugg Cemetery

Dry Fork, Carroll County, Arkansas

Submitted by Rosa Cline

 

 

This cemetery is a small "family" cemetery inside a chain link fence. It sets on a corner and is across Highway 412 from the Dry Fork General Store. It's located about 6 miles from the town of Marble, heading into Carroll County.

 

I have made an alphabetical list at the first of everyone in the cemetery then the transcriptions, just as they were shown on the stones, follows under the list. I tried getting as accurate as I could,..but with weathering and time, some of these were badly in need of repair. For this being a small cemetery and as old as most of the stones are, it is well kept.

 

I came across this cemetery as it is on the end of the county road where Liberty Cemetery is on. (Liberty Cemetery is 2 1/2 miles from this cemetery) This was transcribed on October 6,2001. If anyone has any obits, pictures or anything else they would like to share with me please feel free to contact us. Thanks! Robert and Rosa Cline
