MASONIC CEMETERY

Pocahontas

Randolph County, Arkansas Genealogy Trails

Masonic Cemetery in Pocahontas is one of the oldest landmarks in the city.  It is the final resting place of the third governor of Arkansas, the Honorable Thomas S. Drew.  He was governor from 1844 to 1848.
Randolph Lodge of Master Masons No. 71 was deeded five acres of land, known as the Pocahontas Cemetery, by William H. Waddle for a sum of $20.  Several additions have been made to the cemetery with acquistions from C. F. and J. W. Shannon, Mr. and Mrs. William Junkersfeld, Joseph Schratz and Mr. and Mrs. John L. Bledsoe.  The cemetery contains approximately 15 acres now.  It is located on West Pyburn Street in Pocahontas.  --Excerpts from the Pocahontas Star Herald
