We are preparing to "work" a cemetery in Benton Arkansas and in preperation of this a great deal of research is done. Hence why we are in contact.
Our objective at this site will be to cross reference records from a very old church as well as define the perimeters of the site, clean headstones and possibly discover other markers that often get buried due to neglect or time.
The current site is a bit of a mystery, yet we have some very defined records, the family O'Kelley appears frequently.

If you can give us any insight into the family, i.e the reasons for moving to Ark etc that would be most helpful.
Thank you so much, Kassandra
