This little abandoned cemetery is located off Highway 26 West, just east of Hollywood.

I understand there are probably about 50 graves, but time and nature have reclaimed many monuments and original wooden markers.

I call her the weeping angel.

She's a larger than life sized angel, kneeling prostrate on the Steen family monument.

The folds on the robe in the rear view of the monument, as well as the detail in the feathers, is just incredible.

It took some digging, but I believe this monument marks the graves of Jeremiah Palmer Steen (1840-1908), and his adopted son, William E Steen (1871-1909), both of whom have very simple markers behind the monument.

In the 1880 census, the family was living at 1122 Main Street in Little Rock. That location is now an interstate overpass. Jeremiah Steen's occupation was listed as "collects his rents."

I did not see a stone for Kate Steen, Jeremiah's Canadian born wife.

I'll have to go back and take a closer look...
August 10, 1969 was a horrific day for Charles Ry and Geneva L Ketcherside.

They lost their home in a fire, and with it, 6 children.
