Shepherd's Rest Memorial Cemetery
(Afro-American)
Sweet Home Community
Little Rock, AR Pulaski Co.

March 7, 2009

        

       


There isn't a cemetery sign, as such, and only one stone, which lists the names as a Memorial to the ones 
interred. She isn't actually buried there, but is in Arkansas Veteran's Cemetery, along with her husband.  

The stone says:

SHEPHERD'S REST
MEMORIAL CEMETERY
In Memory of
Muriel Frances Scott Walton Carrington
1933 - 2001
BURIED ARKANSAS VETERANS CEMETERY
FOR HER GENUINE LOVE & TIRELESS EFFORTS
TO REGISTER & PRESERVE
THE SANCTITY OF THIS CEMETERY
CHARLIE & DAUGHTERS
Listed on the back: 
   Daniel Mack Shepherd    1848-1929 
   Mary Elizabeth Shepherd 1849-1924 
   Frances Shepherd        1891-1933 
   Beulah Burks            1901-1934 
   Leona Elizabeth Allen   1909-1957
   
Arkansas Death Records:
   Shepherd, D M     died 05/25/1929
   Shepherd, Mary E  died 10/30/1924
   Shepherd, Francis died 09/22/1933
I found Mrs. Muriel's obit and her husband's obit, Social Security Records, Burial Records, etc. Not being 
born until 1933 She's not in any census until 1940, so I don't know who her parents and siblings might be.
If anyone knows more about Mrs. Muriel or the history of this cemetery and the families interred in it, please contact me, so they can be remembered.
