I am so surprised that they would take the time and effort to make the beautiful tombstones and not put any info on them? Maybe the research will give some answers.

Yep, that's the intriguing puzzle

The only option I can imagine was for some salvage company to come in with torches, cut them into manageable pieces and haul them off on trucks. I'm sure the locals know, but I haven't asked.
Somebody from someplace else took them.

LIDAR=Light Detection and Ranging - For those not familiar with this, it is electronic mapping of the earth with airplanes and helicopters and the results "strip" all trees and vegetation from the map so you see only the earth. Arkansas is one of only three states (I think) that has mapped the entire state. My informer is on a team working to clean up the data and set up a Data Base that will be available to the public and should be on-line in 2018. I'm not sure at this time if it will be free access or subscription. I will be happy to pay a significant subscription fee if it is required.


My archeologist buddy and I have fanaticized about something like this for years. I already have three targets I will check out. One is the (lost) Clark County town of Leard which I have narrowed down to one square mile of pine plantation, another is the ghost town of Graysonia which is supposed to have more structures than we have found in those woods, and a cemetery we have been told about but is under head high brush and can't be seen. The future looks bright and exciting for "Exploring Arkansas".
