Added Information - 2002 - by Deb Yates
The following was taken from "A History of Crittenden
County Arkansas", Crawfordsville chapter,
by Margaret Elizabeth Woolfolk:
Among the first
doctors to serve the sector was John W. Guerrant, who
was a practitioner in the 1860's.
Ironically, one of the town's early cemeteries, established in the
1860's and located a mile to the east, was given his name. Veterans of the Civil War whose graves are at
Cemetery include Privates
Henry Morris, John Denton, Robert N. Wallace, John Powell, W. P. M. Martin, and
Frank Riley. Also buried there were
Captains Thomas Owen Mosby, John G. Lewis and _____ Ralston, Major Richard M.
Avery, and Dr. Thomas Whitsett.
Also buried at Guerrant
Cemetery is a queen of a
gypsy clan who died one winter in the early 1900's while the members of her
clan were encamped on the banks of Jenkins
Lake behind the present Methodist Church site. The gypsy group used to make Crawfordsville a
regular stop each year and for many years after the queen's death, held
ceremonies at her grave site annually.
Dr. John W. Guerrant was buried at Bethel Cemetery
in Crawfordsville. Since the opening of Crittenden Memorial Park, on the western outskirts
of Marion, some
remains have been moved from both Bethel
Cemeteries to that
