This is one of the
oldest cemeteries in
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
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.

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.

√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.
