This item was on the  front page of the Van Buren Argus newspaper of Van Buren, Crawford County, Arkansas on June 14, 1905 and I felt it might be helpful to those researching their ancestors who fought in the Civil War in Northwestern Arkansas. Many of these names are not listed in "History In Headstones" and might prove to be very beneficial to some of you.

Van Buren, Ark., January 18, 1905

Messrs. Thayer Brothers:

Gentlemen; The enclosed book is the original list of Confederate dead buried in Fairview Cemetery, kept by Miss Hazeltine Massey, so far as she could get the reports from the different hospitals. The list only calls for 242 names. Wm Stoval, the sexton at the time, said that he knew there were over [appears to read 336] Confederates buried in the Cemetery. Yours truly, J E Clegg.
