Lone Pine Cemetery

 Lone Pine cemetery is located just 6 miles north west of Clarksville, Arkansas on hwy. 103 and then  2 1/2 miles east on Lone Pine road. Lone Pine road is well known by the locals, however, for those of you who are far off, it is county hwy. 76. 
 The cemetery sits atop a knoll overlooking a very pretty valley with a couple of farms sitting in the meadows surrounded by trees and forest. It runs east and west along the side of  Lone Pine road for about a quarter of a mile and north of the road for about 1/8 of a mile.  There is a gravel road that comes off of Lone Pine road, makes a curve to go from east to west through the middle of the cemetery and then curves south back onto Lone Pine road.  There are many mature oak trees and a few mature pine trees with one large pine that possibly was planted at the time of the beginning of the cemetery. At the southeast entrance there is a wrought iron archway painted white with the lettering of  Lone Pine Cemetery written accross the top.  A cement sidewalk has been added that curves up from the gravel road at the very S.E. corner and winds itself through the arch and on into the cemetery. It is a shady, pretty little cemetary and on a Sunday afternoon it is a very quiet and peacful place to visit. 
 The gravestones are all in good shape, with only some of the older ones needing a bit of cleaning. Several of the graves have flowers. The cemetery looks to be well taken care of, I only saw one or two headstones that have fallen over, although some are a little crooked as the tree roots have grown and pushed the headstones off a bit.  On the south side there are several places where small rock walls of about  8 to 12 inches  high have been built to level out the graves. The front, or south side, consists mainly of graves from the 1800's with a few from the 1900's. The back, or north side, has mainly graves from the 1900's with a few from the 1800's sprinkled in here and there.

To the best of our knowledge these stones were read correctly:  Donna and Marci Boden  July 2000
