Cole's Furniture Store

Sam and Marie Cole owned and operated Cole's Furniture Store from about 1917 until the late 1930's. It was located on North Ozark Street in Trumann, AR. They sold all kinds of household goods and eventually sold caskets and went into the "Undertaking Business". Some people used their funeral services, while others chose (by necessity) to only purchase the casket and often clothing or shroud and perform the other services themselves. Prices ranged from a low of $10.00 to a high of $750.00. A journal was kept of all sales, including furniture and caskets. It is from this Journal that a list was compiled to those who purchased caskets and or funeral services. The purchaser was usually a member of the family or the person liable for the purchase. Several of these people are buried at the Wilson Cemetery (Craighead Co.) in unmarked graves. If known, they are so marked. Otherwise many are not known where they are buried, but some of them are surely at the Wilson Cemetery of Craighead County.
