Campbell Cemetery (Caney Creek, Zion)

The Campbell Cemetery lies in a lonely pasture well off the beaten path near Zion. Buried here are the members of the Campbell family descended from William R. Campbell as well as Jennings and Arnolds. Notice the reproduction marker of Jencie Campbell, a Servant of Leander and Sarah Jennings.
There is a large number of reproduction markers that read, "unknown" in this in many of the other cemeteries of Izard County. There is also a significant number of children buried here. This fits a pattern we've noticed emerging as we visit these sites...the great number of children who died during the early 1870s.
