Champagnolle Cemetery
also known as Champagnolle-Castleberry Cemetery
Union County, Arkansas

Established 1882

Submitted June 13, 2004, by Janice Holzer; updated May 2006 from obituaries

(Near Ouachita River SE of Calion.)  The original cemetery (established about 1873) was located closer to the river and part of the cemetery was washed away during a flood.  According to what Mrs. Holzer was told by an "old timer," the cemetery was moved farther away from the river and located on higher ground.

There are several unmarked graves in this cemetery or they are only marked with field stones.

Broken unreadable stone: August 6, 1874 Aged about 27 yrs

The following information was furnished by family members:

*(1) JOHN B. ANDREWS: The family of JOHN and LUCAS ANDREWS, and JOE HOFFROG, intends to place a new marker for John, just as they did for Lucas and Joe.  All three men drowned in a boat accident on the Ouachita River somewhere between Lock and Dam 8 at Calion and Monroe.  James Alfred Parker of Calion gave information on this to the family:  "They were working with a logging crew on a boat hauling barges of logs to Monroe; a storm suddenly came up and sank the boat and the barges.  All three men drowned, and it took a long time to recover their bodies.  James Alfred Parker's father, Alfred, helped to bury them at Champagnolle.  The bodies are located between the grave of Joe Hoffrog's old marker and fence.

(2) ROBERT ADAIR BROWN 1878 - 1941
