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 Guerrant 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 and Guerrant Cemeteries to that location.
