    I’m looking for information on the CCC camps and pictures. My father and other family members were in the CCC during the time of it’s operation. I believe they were in CCC Camp Hedges. My father’s name was Cecil Jeffery.

    Looking for history of the Flatwoods Cemetery does anyone know who donated the land for the Church & Cemetery? I think the Becham Family had the first burial in 1863.

      Upon doing research for my family I am seeing your post on this page. I have family in Flatwoods Cemetery also but was able to print the entire list of “residents” from the website arkansasgravestones.org.
      On the list I printed there are 23 Beckhams listed for Flatwoods Cemetery.
      Hope this information is helpful still.

    Hello. My name is Mark Zimmerman. My Father, Morris Bush Zimmerman, often told me about his birthplace in Fifty-Six, AR in a log cabin that HIS Father, Ezekiel Erskine Zimmerman, built there. My Grandmother’s name was Bessie Irene Bush. (My Father’s middle name was named after her and after Percy Bysshe Shelley). Both of my Grandparents died before I was born, but I remember my Father taking my brother, my sister and me to the cabin once when we were very young. Unfortunately I don’t remember anything about the address. (Just that there was a kind neighbor lady that gave us cookies and my Father warning us about yellow jackets). We never visited there again since and my Father wasn’t very forthcoming with any other pertinent information. I would very much like to find out where my Grandfather’s log cabin once stood and if maybe it’s even still standing. I look forward to hearing from you soon. God bless.

    Sincerely,
    Mark Zimmerman
