GATLIN CEMETERY

Brookland, Craighead, Arkansas



Location: This old cemetery is on the Fisher farm west of New Haven Church on 351.

Many thanks to Jeanette (Gatlin) Tennant and Chris Chamberlain for the names listed here. Jeanette compiled the list of Gatlin names and the remaining names are from Chris' grandfather's papers. According to Jeanette, most of the Gatlin graves were never marked except with round metal poles. These poles are now missing.

There was an Arkansas Archeological Survey done by the district archaeologist, Dr. Julie Morrow at ASU. The results mark the location of 19 found gravesites with a possible 2-4 more. There are 28 names on the list of those believed to be buried there which falls right in line with what we found if we assume the babies and very small children were either not found or buried so close to the parent that it was counted as the same.

From the oral history told by Curtis Clinton Chamberlain, the Chamberlain gravesites should be graves 6 and 8 with the two probable graves in between. It is not known which of these are Charles and Sousanah and which are William and Sarah.
