This is a partial listing of people interred at this cemetery. I have obits for some of them, if anyone would like a copy. Sometimes there are pictures of the people with the obit. If you donít find the information on this transcription, go to the Find-A-Grave transcription. There may be more information there. I am trying to update this list about every other month. I will put a * beside those that have been added since the last update.

 

I live too far away from Jonesboro 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.
