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.
