Nancy's Lawrence County Corner

CALVIN CEMETERY
a.k.a. CALVIN CROSSING
Lawrence County, Arkansas


Location: 2 miles north of Alicia on highway 67. It is on the right (east).

I have been including deaths listed in the Times Dispatch Newspaper from Walnut Ridge. In some cases the birth date was not given. In those cases I listed "no date" as a birth date. This does not mean that a birth is not included on their monument.
