This cemetary is called "Denton-Magby Cemetary Established early 1900's" the sign is posted to a tree in the cemetary.

Directions: Take Hwy 270 (Malvern Avenue) to Acres Road turn down Acres til you get to Circle R Court on the left (2nd street on left down acres rd.) Go to the end at the cul-de-sac.

The Cemetary is located behind the house on the right at the end of Circle R Ct. You have to walk between 3-4 barbed wire fences to get to it. The cemetary is fenced in with a gate. Is is located in a cow pasture. Owners said the property used to be owned by a Ms. Magby.

The cemetary is fairly large for a family cemetary most of the graves just have fieldstones and pipes for their headstones. The others are:

Magby, Samuel L.1860-1933†† (dbl with wife Mary Jane)

Magby, Mary Jane1867-1939†† (tombstone says At Rest)

located to the left ofSamuel and Jane Magby is:

Magby, Zula June†† June 9, 1933

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† April 27, 1935

located on the other end of the cemetary next to the fence line is:

Parker, MableMay 2, 1909

††††††††††††††††††††† Oct 17, 1909 (also has a Gross Mortuary marker next to it)

Parker, DickieOct 23, 1906

†††††††††††††††††††††† Oct 23, 1906 (also has a Gross Mortuary marker nest to it)

There is one grave directly above the Parker children with just a Funeral marker, no names or dates. All other graves are unmarked. Possibly Denton family and more Magbys buried there. Someone still tends to the unmarked graves because there are flowers on them.




Anthony Rushing - Feb 26, 2004Some additional info.†† This may be the son of Silas Mance Magby.†† IN 1860 he lived in the vicinity of the Hot Springs/Saline Co line.†† He enlisted in Co F 3rd Ark Cav which was called the Hot Springs Cav (nickname).†† There was also a James Magby in this unit.†† However, Silas Mance (Uncle Mance) Magby is buried in the Bryant Cemetery.†† Since the family is listed in 1900 Bryant township this would possibly show they were living there to assist the elder Magby.




†† Eddie Landreth - Feb 26, 2004 The Samuel and Mary Magby from Bryant are my G-G-G-grandparents.†† Their daughter, Casander ("Cassie"), was my G-G-Grandmother.†† My records show that the Samuel L. Magby is the son of the Samuel and Mary Magby of Bryant.†† Samuel L.'s wife was Mary J. Denton.†† My records on "Uncle Mance" as he was know in the family, is that he married Lou Hill and they had one daughter, Ruth.†††††




†† Anthony Rushing - Feb 26, 2004 Thanks for the clarification.†† I was shooting from the hip so to speak.†† I guess that means that Mr. Seibert Magby is not a descendant of Silas Mance and must be from Samuel.†† Are they all related? Silas, Samuel and James.†††††




†† Eddie Landreth - Feb 26, 2004††† I think the James Magby you're referring to is Samuel Magby's brother, and he was Mance's and Samuel L.'s uncle.†† James M. Magby was born in 1834, so would have been about 27 at the outbreak of the war.†††††
