This is one of the oldest cemeteries in Crittenden County, AR. It is located in Tyronza Township about two miles north of Earle on Hwy. 149. The cemetery surrounds a small white frame church. Part of the cemetery is across the road. There is still disagreement among the local people about whether the paved road was over the graves. The cemetery is still being used, but it is hard to dig a grave without hitting another one. Many of the markers were funeral home markers, some in fairly good condition but many had deteriorated because of weather and were nearly unreadable. They are now gone. Some of the monuments are broken and many are hard to read. The majority of the people buried here do not have tombstones. When the railroad was being built several workers were killed and they are buried here. Included are some names and dates given by families of persons who are buried here with no marker.

 

The cemetery remains active. A sign has been erected on the north side of the church, naming the site as a (unofficial) historical landmark. Relatives of people who are buried here continue to maintain this cemetery through voluntary donations. Several years ago, a fund was established to provide maintenance for Gibson Bayou Cemetery. Several local people have served as chairman of the project, beginning with Mr. Clifford Chisum who kept the cemetery in the 1960s and 1970s, Bill Baker, Billy Joe McGill and Jack Stepp, among others. Currently, Larry Miller is in charge of the maintenance project.

 

The church itself has been the victim of two separate accidents in which vehicles have left the highway and collided with the building. Since no repairs have been made to the church building during the past several years, and it being in desperate need of restoration, a Homecoming Fundraiser was held in April 2002. The structure had shifted from its foundation, causing moisture damage, and was in immediate need of repairs in order to slow deterioration. After several inspections, it was determined that the church could not be saved. It has yet to be decided what to do with the money that was raised, but perhaps go towards reconstructing the building, using what good materials might be salvaged from the present church. It would be quite a large and costly project for someone to undertake. If you would be interested in contributing towards the reconstruction of the church, or maintenance of the cemetery, donations can be made to Gibson Bayou Funds, c/o Jack Stepp, 755 Crook Road, Earle, AR 72331. (Note: Funds were raised and with the help of several volunteers, a new replicated church was constructed in 2004. The project was headed by Jack Stepp. Thank you to everyone who donated their time and money towards this project.) Since the building of the new church, the building has once again been damaged, and since repaired, by a semi-truck that left the highway and crashed into the steps.

 

Pat Brown started copying the stones and markers in 1967 and has added and made corrections in the years since. She and Debbie Yates have been working together since 2000 to complete and correct the entries. Numerous unmarked graves have been discovered and added.

 

D = double monument, NS = no stone, FHM = funeral home marker, SSDI = Social Security Death Index, Twp = Township, FUMC = First United Methodist Church (records furnished by W. Joe Wood), brackets [ ] around a name or date indicates this data is not on the tombstone. Entries taken from data of Paige and Polly Miller will be designated PPM. New surnames in an entry will be capitalized just to make them easier to find when scanning entries. DLY indicates later added notes from Debbie Yates.

 

A special THANK YOU to the staff of Roller-Citizens Funeral Home in West Memphis for their graciousness and hospitality in allowing us to research their records for Gibson Bayou burials. A big THANK YOU to Jim Smothers of Thompson Wilson Funeral Home in Wynne, and Allen Cowan of Stone Art in Jonesboro, for working with us on reasonable pricing of grave markers in order to mark many of these graves that have otherwise been unmarked for numerous years.

 

And a very special THANK YOU to all the families who have submitted their own information.

 

"They would bring the caskets in by water to Gibson Bayou and to the

Hood Cemetery and ask to bury their dead."

From The Commercial Appeal: "Deaf Farmer Is Shot by Two Highwaymen, Thugs Shoot When Earle Man Fails to Hear Commands" When his deafness prevented his hearing commands to hold up his hands, Nelson Burnett, 32, farmer, living near Earle, was shot through the stomach by highwaymen Saturday night at 11:00 o’clock. He was walking home from Earle at the time. He was found in the road about 45 minutes later by James Roe, farmer, who was passing in his car. Row returned him to Earle, where a Holt ambulance took him to Baptist Hospital in Memphis. His condition is critical. He has a family.

Then they robbed him of about $4 and fled. Officers at Earle today had found no trace of the assailants. Nelson died the next morning on Christmas Day.

DILL, Georgia  Ada Fennell – (born Apr 9, 1905), Died Apr 19, 1938, Poinsett County, AR,  Aged 33 y, 10 d Stone or FHM missing in 1999, buried beside Sam Mettler, mother of Mildred Dill, grandmother of Debbie Summerford. Sec. H or E - On the 1880 census, William and Phoebe Fennell were living in Marion County, AL.  William (listed as Fenel) was age 50, born NC.  His wife, Phebee, was age 46, born AL.  They had 3 sons (Phinas, age 18, Houston, age 15, and Thomas, age 8, all born AL).  They had 2 daughters (Margret, age 22, Elizabeth, age 13, also born AL).  Two grandchildren were also in the household (Phebee Fenel, age 6, and James Fenel, age 1, both born AL). - By 1900, Phebe Fennel, now widowed, was in Lee County, MS, Plantersville. She was a farmer, listed as age 69, and was married for 40 years.  She was born January, with the birth year difficult to read, but looks like 1835. Based on the 1880 census, she was probably age 65 in 1900, and the birth year of 1835 would probably be correct. She was listed as being born in MS although the 1880 census shows she was born in AL, her mother born SC. Five of her children were still in the household, all single; Phebe Fennel, head, age 69, born Jan 1835?, farmer, Tom Fennel, son, age 27, born Dec 1872, Margret Fennel, daughter, age 25, born May 1872, Jim Fennel, son, age 20, born Jan 1880, Mertle Fennel, daughter, age 14, born Feb 1886, Nettie Fennel, daughter, age 12, born Nov 1889.  On the census, Phebe’s children were all listed as born in Mississippi, but based on the 1880 census, they were born in Alabama. - On the 1900 census of Lee County, MS, Houston Fennel and family were living in Richmond Precinct.  Houston Fennel, age 35, was born Apr 1865, was a farmer, and had been married for 7 years. His wife, Elizabeth, was age 30, born May 1870 in MississippiHouston Fennel was also listed as born in MS but would have been born in Alabama.  They had 3 daughters listed in the household; Mittie, age 5, daughter, born Nov 1894 in MS, Lonie, age 3, daughter, born May 1897 in MS, Annie B., age 8/12, daughter, born Oct 1899 in MS. Living next door to Houston Fennell was Elias Morgan.  He was age 72 and born in SC.  There appears to be a relationship between Elizabeth, the wife of Houston Fennell, and this Morgan family. These families lived near each other for several census years. Two other sons of Elias Morgan were also living next to Houston Fennell.  These were Alexander Morgan, age 37, and William (Will) Morgan, age 34. I would suspect that Elizabeth Fennell may have been a child or grandchild to Elias Morgan, but in 1880 Lee County, MS, the only female of the correct age, living in the Elias Morgan household, was Isabella Morgan, age 11. - By 1910, Phebe Fennel, now listed as age 68 and a widow, was living in the household of her son, Tom Fennel.  Tom Fennel was age 32, born AL, and still single.  Martha A. Fennel, his sister, was age 41 and also single.  The household included a 13 year old niece, Myrtle Truelove. In 1910, Charles Houston Fennel, age 38, was living next door to his mother and brother. He was shown to have been married for 16 years and born AL.  His wife, Elizabeth, was age 36, born MS, married 16 years.  She had given birth to 9 children with 8 still living, all daughters, and all born MS; Mittie Fennel, daughter, age 15, Velonia Fennel, daughter, age 13, Annie Fennel, daughter, age 11, Florence Fennel, daughter, age 8, Lillie Fennel, daughter, age 6, Larela Fennel, daughter, age 5, Georgie Fennel, daughter, age 3, Evie Fennel, daughter, age 6/12 - By 1920, Houston's mother, Phoebe, had died, as had his wife, Elizabeth Fennel. Houston Fennel and his children were living in the household with his brother, Tom Fennel who was now 46.  His sister Margret Fennel, was also in the household, now age 58.  They were living in Beat 4 at Plantersville and Tupelo Road.  Houston, Tom and Margret were all shown to be born in AL, their father born NC. J. Tom Fennel, head, age 46, farmer, home farm, single, born AL, Margret Fennel, sister, age 58, single, born AL, Houston Fennel, head, age 54, widow, born AL, Lillie Fennel, daughter, age 17, single, born MS, Georgie Fennel, daughter, age 13, born MS, Bessie Fennel, daughter, age 9, born MS, William Fennel, son, age 6, born MS. It appears that only one son was born to Houston and Elizabeth Fennell, William, who was also the youngest child.  Larela must have died by 1920, since she was no longer listed. - In 1930, Houston Fennel was living in the household with his daughter and son-in-law in Black Oak Township, Crittenden County, AR. They were living on Plantation Road. Winfield Dill was a tenant cotton farmer. Both parents of Winfield Dill were listed as being born AL. Winfield Dill, head, age 24, married at age 19, born AL , Georgia Dill, wife, age 24, married at age 19, born MS , Uni??? Dill, daughter, age 1, born MS, Houston Fennel, father in law, age 67, widow, born MS. The name of the 1 year old daughter was possibly Unice? She was shown to be born in MS.  The birthplace for Houston Fennel, and both parents of Georgia are shown to be MS, but should have been AL.

DILLARD, Robert “Bob” Lee – NS – Born May 2, 1911 in Mississippi, died Mar 21, 1932 in Baptist Hospital, Memphis. He was age 21, a farmer, and a resident of Earle. He was the son of Robert Lee Dillard and Minnie Floyd, both born Mississippi. He died of massive brain injury as the result of an auto accident.

She was buried at Crittenden Memorial Park by Citizens Funeral Home. Most likely, her husband Robert Lee Dillard, is buried along with her. I found no grave markers at Crittenden Memorial for either of these graves. The 1930 census of Crittenden County shows the family living in Norvell, R. L. Dillard, age 47. Wife Minnie age 54. The children were; Pansy, dau, age 25, Jewell age 21, Carl age 20, Robert Lee age 18, William 16. Also Ethel Parks, age 40 and widowed, listed as sister, All born MS. Sec ?

DUNN, Mrs. - NS - died sometime in the 1930’s, mother of Irene Dunn who married Ray White. This entry was originally recorded by Paige and Polly Miller as Mrs. White, mother of Ray and Wallace WHITE from Turrell, AR. They lived on the Golightly Plantation. Information corrected by W.

There is a listing in Arkansas Death Index for Irene DUNN who died in Crittenden County on July 5, 1937. This is probably the correct entry for her. She was the mother of at least two daughters who survived; Irene Dunn (born 1923) who married Ray White (1916-1981), and Hattie Mae Dunn who lives in Birmingham, AL. Alomagene White Maxwell, daughter of Ray and Irene (Dunn) White, married Dickie Maxwell and lives in Florida.  Mrs. Dunn had two other daughters who are buried in unmarked graves across the road from the church in section I.

LIPE, Doskey J. – NS – Born Aug 1881 Chester or Henderson Co., TN – Died Mar 26, 1940. This grave is unmarked but most likely buried here. He died 3 years after his father, Solomon Henry Lipe. He was the husband of Lelia Kemp, daughter of James Monroe Kemp and Catheryn Patterson of Weakley Co. TN.  The 1900 census of Chester County, TN shows Soloman H. Lipe, born Aug 1860 TN, Martha A. Lipe, born Jan 1861 TN, 3 births, 2 living,  Doskey J. Lipe, son, age 18, born Aug 1881, Rosa Lipe, dau, age 13, born 1887 TN.  In 1910 Henderson Co., TN, Doskey J. and Lela Lipe had been married 7 years. Lela had given birth to two daughters, both living; Ruby age 4, and Guinn age 1 and 6 months. In 1920, Doskey J. Lipe, age 37, and Lelia Lipe, age 35, were living in Earle on Barton Street, Crittenden County. Doskey was a farmer and owned his own farm. They had two daughters; Ruby age 14 and Guinn age 11. Ruth Wren had died by this time. By 1930, Doskey age 48 and Lela age 45, were living in Crittenden County in Jackson Twp, on James Mill Road. Solomon Lipe was widowed, age 69, and living in the household with Doskey and Lela Lipe. No daughters remained in the household. By 1940, only Lelia Lipe remained. She was widowed and living in Crittenden County, Crawfordsville. A 35 year old lodger, Carrie Mowery, a school teacher, was living with her. Ruby Lipe married George Henry Bumb. She died in Hot Springs, Garland County, AR, on January 2, 2000. She was returned to Crittenden Memorial Park in Marion for burial.

LIPE, Martha Ann Stanfield – NS – Born Jan 1861 Tennessee – died between 1920-1930 Crittenden County, Arkansas. Martha Ann Stanfield Lipe was the wife of Solomon Henry Lipe. She died in Arkansas, most likely Crittenden County, some time between 1920 and 1930. A death record has not been located for her, but since she would have died in Crittenden County, it would be assumed that she was buried in Gibson Bayou Cemetery where her husband was later buried. Rose Lipe, daughter of Solomon and Martha Lipe may also be buried here, She was 35 and single, living in the household with her parents in Crittenden County, Black Oak Twp, at the time of the 1920 census. She can no longer be found by the time of the 1930 census, nor has a marriage record been located. On the 1900 census of Chester County, Tennessee, it was shown that she had been born in TN in 1887.

LIPE, Ruth Wren, dau of D. J. & L. M. Lipe – Dec 5, 1913 – June 17, 1918 Ruth was the daughter of Doskey J. Lipe who was the son of Solomon Henry Lipe. Doskey’s wife was Lela Kemp, daughter of James Monroe Kemp and Catheryn Patterson, from Weakley County, TN. James Monroe Kemp died in Earle on Feb 22, 1915. Lela Kemp Lipe is buried in Crittenden Memorial. (Dosky J. Lipe, 37 all born TN, was found on the 1920 census living in Earle Town with wife Lelia 35 and children Ruby 14 and Guinn 11.)

LIPE, Solmon H. – Aug 6, 1860 – Mar 26, 1937 Woodmen of the World Memorial - The AR Death Index lists this man as Solomon Henry Lipe. Husband of Martha Ann STANFIELD.  The following information was provided by Billy Jack Gregg: It appears that Solomon Lipe who is buried in the Gibson Bayou cemetery was the father of Doskey Lipe, the husband of Lelia Lipe.  Solomon was born in Tennessee in 1861 and died in Crittenden County in 1937.  His wife Martha A. Stanfield Lipe died in Arkansas some time between 1920 and 1930. On the 1920 census of Crittenden County, Solomon Lipe and Marthy Lipe were both age 59. They had a daughter in the household, Rosa Lipe, age 35. They were living in Black Oak Twp, on and near Earle and Marked Tree Road (Hwy 149) Solomon Lipe was a farmer and a trader.  Lelia Kemp was also born in Tennessee on April 6, 1884, most likely in Weakley County.  Doskey Lipe was born in 1882, most likely in Chester or Henderson County, Tennessee.  Doskey and Lelia married in 1903, and their first daughter Ruby was born July 23, 1905.  A second daughter Guinn was born in 1910.  Doskey and Lelia moved from Sardis, Henderson Co., Tennessee, to Crawfordsville, Arkansas, some time between 1910 and 1920.  (In 1920, they were living in Earle. Doskey was a farmer and owned his own farm) As your records show, their third daughter, Ruth Wren (1913-1918) is buried in the Gibson Bayou cemetery.  Lelia Lipe died in Crawfordsville in December 1975.  I do not know when Doskey Lipe died, and I do not know what happened to Guinn Lipe after 1920.  The name Guinn (or related spellings) with her identifying age and birthplace does not appear in the 1930 census.

SMILEY, James Richard – NS – Aug 4, 1862 – Sep 28, 1924. Death certificate for James Richard Smiley, shows that he was the husband of Florence Smiley. He was born Aug 4, 1862, died Sep 28, 1924 in Crittenden County, and was buried at Gibson Bayou. He died of an intestinal obstruction and had been treated by Dr. H. S. Watson of Earle. Florence Smiley would have been his second wife. James R. Smiley was the husband of Mary A. Smiley who died in Crittenden County in 1900. Mary Smiley owned 340 acres of land on what is now called Smokey Alley Road. This property was purchased by Mary Smiley on Jun  7. 1899. In Feb 1902, a decree was issued to make sale of the lands to enforce payment of the levee taxes for 1902. It stated, “J. R. Smiley, for Mary Smiley, his wife, she being dead”.  The property was sold at public auction on Aug 18, 1902 to R. S. Morris. On August 2, 1907, a complaint was filed against R. S. Morris by J. R. Smiley, for the minor heirs, Ryvers Smiley and Joe McCrimmons, heirs at law of Mary A. Smiley.  Is Mary A. Smiley who died  in 1900, also buried here?  James R. Smiley was the son of James L. Smiley, born 1822 in Indiana, and Manervy, born 1835 in AR. The family was living in St. Francis County, Blackfish Township, at the time of the 1880 census. They had children; James R. 18, Julina 20, Robert 15, Jessie 12, Valandingham 9, Amanda 5, and Samantha 3. Sec. ?

               On the 1900 census of Crittenden County, J. R. Smiley, a widower age 34, born Jan 1866, was listed with a 3 year old son, Rivers Smiley, living in the household of T. J. and Sarah McCormick, and a sister-in-law, Katie Holcomb.  Joe McCrimmon, boarder, was living in the household with Robert and Maggie Smiley in 1910 Tyronza Township. Robert Smiley had one child; Beulah, born Mar 1897. His sister, Katie Smiley, born May 1858, was also in the household. The World War I Draft Registration for Ryvers Smiley shows that his father was J. R. Smiley who was living at Twist in June 1918 and had been born near Forrest City, AR.  Ryvers Smiley had been born Mar 1896 at Turrell. The mother of Ryvres Smiley and Joe McCrimmon must have been married to a McCrimmon before marrying James R. Smiley.

At the time of the 1930 census, I find a Frank Smiley, age 42 (b. 1888) and Florence Smiley, age 39 (b. 1891) living in Crittenden County, Norvell. They had a 7 year old daughter, Dolly Smiley. This would have been after the death of J. R. Smiley.
