Crawford County, Arkansas

The Steward Cemetery is located on the old home place of William Steward. It is in Section 1, Township 10 North, Range 31 West. It is located in the old Lancaster Community. About 5 miles North of Alma, go North on Hwy 282 for 1 2/10 miles, turn left on Lancaster Road ( Old County Rd - 27) and go 1 � miles till you come to Frog Bayou. Do not cross the creek, but turn left under the railroad trestle and continue up the drive to the old rock house. Go to the right of the house through the gate and down the drive alongside the East bank of Frog Bayou for about two hundred yards to the cemetery. Steward Cem is enclosed in a chainlink fence with a wrought iron gate with the name STEWARD on it.

William Steward was born in Connecticut on July 4, 1788. He spent much of his life as a boy in Oswego, N. Y. He fought in the war of 1812, was wounded in the battle of Chipawa and was in Fort Erie when it was blown up. Steward came to Van Buren, Crawford Co, Arkansas in 1836 and purchased land from the government upon which Lancaster was built. He built a home in 1837, moved his family to this land and built the first grist mill and saw mill in the county. William Steward married Phoebe Dean in 1817 and had three sons, Harvey, Alexander and Darwin. Phoebe died about 1830 before they arrived in Arkansas. He married Malissa D. in Indiana.

This file contains all of the visable and known burials with the exception that in the early days of the cemetery, slaves were buried on the west side (creek side) of the cemetery about half way from the front to the back. They were once marked with field stones and some of them still remain.

This listing was compiled on 31 Jul 2000 by Jim Winn, assisted by Kathleen O'Kelley, [kathleen@okelley.org] both of whom are Steward descendants, working for the preservation of this cemetery.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
