Dear Mr. Ware,
Josh Williams and I were visiting the Tulip Cemetery on Tuesday, and came across a 3rd Arkansas Grave. There are actually 2 stones, although none are the military markers. We did not have a camera with us at the time and do not have a photo to send.

To reach the cemetery, Take Arkansas HWY 9 to Tulip. There will be a sign on the highway to direct you to the cemetery. Driving south into Tulip, the cemetery will be on the right. Driving North into Tulip, the cemetery will be on the left. Follow the road, and when it forks, take the left fork, you will be able to see the cemetery from the fork. The cemetery will be located behind the Tulip Methodist Church. When you walk into the cemetery, the stone will be several rows ahead on the right side.
