Old Holcomb Cemetery
1510 Circle Drive

Springdale AR 72764

      


Holcomb Cemetery appears largely as a vacant two and one half acre lot behind houses at the east end of Circle Drive. However there are five or six stones and remains of others in a small area of the lot. Only a couple of the stones are easily readable but one is Margaret Smiley, daughter of Francis M Smiley and Tabitha Holcomb who died in 1848, only a few months after she was born. Francis Smiley's stone is standing not far from his daughter's. There is a partial stone with what appears to be the name Catherine Holcomb, which could be John Holcomb's younger sister who died in 1855.

An effort is underway by the Pendleton Chapter of Daughters of the American Colonists to have the City of Springdale "claim ownership of this cemetery so that it may be honorably preserved.."
