Their suggestion:
-------------------------
Good day to you. According to the Searcy County Library compilation of cemeteries, Jane Berry died in 1928 and not 1925. There is another Jane Barnes who died in 1925 who is buried in another cemetery. This error has been transferred all across the Internet and Ancestry.com for a number of years. There is also much confusion regarding John Wyatt Berry and John Wayne Berry. John Wayne Berry is my Great-grandfather and my Great-great-grandfather is John Wyatt Berry. John Wyatt Berry died in 1872 after he and his small family moved to Arkansas. This was not the first trip that John Wyatt made to Ark. He was here in 1860 and then moved back to Wayne Co where he married Nancy Margaret Newman. When they came to Arkansas their only child was Mary Jane Berry Barnes; John Wayne Berry was born after they arrived. Some place, I have seen pictures of Mary Jane Berry Barnes stone. It is small, only says Jane Barnes and the year dates. I do have a good photo of Jane and one of John Wayne Berry's headstone. I too have spent years researching my family and have made several trips, one to Searcy and Stone Counties and several calles to Wayne County. Therefore, I too will not post any pictures to memorials that I do not own unless it is strictly an act of kindness.

For those looking for Jane Berry Barnes marker, she is in Row two, according to the last reading. - dennis hinkle

We made a day trip to Marshall and Mountain View this past week to visit the courthouses and then go to the Scribner Cemetery. Stone Co does not have a death record for Mary Jane Berry Barnes nor the State of Ark. The local Library does not have anything on her. However, a nice lady on the Historical Society Board in Mountain View is checking their records for any information. Sam and Mary Jane had separated prior to her death, according to a family member. There may not be a definitive document relating her death. - dennis

Vada Barnes Lawrence



Vada Barnes Lawrence in her home in Big Flat
Her son Asa Lawrence died in October 1976.

In the late 1970s, we went to Big Flat to visit Great-Grandma Lawrence. I think it may have been for her birthday.

Those are Great-Grandma Lawrence's roses in the photo. She loved those roses.

The jackets that Tammy and I are wearing are our Green Forest Tigers jackets that we got shortly after moving to Green Forest. So the photo had to be taken after we moved in 1978 and Mike looks to be about 3-5 years old so it must be around 1979.
