Pulaski Co AR
Cemetery is near Sweet Home, AR off Harper Road.
FREEMAN Johnnie E 10 JUN 1885 11 JUN 1915
After finding this cemetery on a map, it looked to be a large cemetery. We found the general area of this cemetery in the summer of 2003, but it was very hot and there was a field of crops growing on the land, so we went back in February, 2004 and was led to the cemetery by Mike & Dee Fryar. The cemetery is behind the field, in the woods.
We found only Johnnie Freeman's grave, and his tombstone had fallen and broken in two pieces, but there were plants growing in several areas that are assumed to be other gravesites. I believe there may be many others interred in this cemetery, but if so, there are no visible markers, they may be covered over with leaves or now underground.
We then set out to find who Johnnie Freeman was, and found him and his family on census. His parents were Anderson and Liza Freeman. Johnnie was 30 when he died, and since he hasn't been found on the 1910 census, it is not known if he had married and had a family or not. At the very least, Johnnie will "not be forgotten."
