Smith Cemetery

Poinsett County, Arkansas

Submitted June 8, 2006, by Norma Thompson

Location: About 1 mile south from Hwy 14 on the County Road between Jackson and Poinsett County, turn East about 1/2 mile and the cemetery is left on a dike between two fields (two years ago rice was growing) and go to the end where there is a clump of trees. It can be seen from the county road because there are so few trees in the area.


Howard, Lou  wife of JC Howard  died Dec 15 1898  age 32 Yrs

Howard, Sarah  wife of JC Howard died May 29 1898  age 24 Yrs

Smith AJ  died Feb 14 1897  age 62 years

Smith TC  born Jan 25 1863   died Jan 22 1892


Lou Williams Pharris Smith married JC Howard on 14 Sep 1898, 3 months before she died and about 4 months after Sarah Smith Howard (her sister-in-law) died.  

Lou had two children, 2 & 5 yrs old, 

JC Howard and Sarah had a 2 yr old child when she died. 

Lou was the widow of James Smith, the brother of Sarah Smith Howard mentioned above.

The 2 year old child of Lou Smith Howard was my grandmother Evelina Smith who married Walter Hogan Earles. I have not been able to find the death date and burial site of James Smith. (his middle name may have been Monroe).  I think he probably is buried at this small cemetery in the middle of a field near Midway, Ark. which is between Amagon and Waldenburg, Ark. The only stones remaining in the cemetery as of two years ago are the ones I have listed above.  The cemetery has been uncared for many years. It is on the property of Bobby Cox and farmed by Greg Griffin, his nephew.
