Shepherd's Rest Memorial Cemetery
Sweet Home Community
Little Rock, AR Pulaski Co.

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.
