Nancy BOHANAN

Bohanan aka Nancy Bohanan Grave Cemetery
Madison County,
Arkansas

This tombstone reads Nancy Bohanan, 17 May 1842. This grave is located one mile west of Huntsville on the banks of Holman Creek, just a short distance off of Highway 412. This photo was taken in 1995 by Ray & Anne Fowler. A couple of years ago, there was a new bridge built over Holman Creek at this location, and some dirt work was done near this location. We cannot find this tombstone now, even though there are several graves marked with fieldstones that still can be found. Nothing is known about this Nancy Bohanan. In November 1862, an escort of 25 Union soldiers were sent to accompany Isaac Murphy's daughters back to Huntsville after a visit with their father who was serving as a secretary to Union officials at Pea Ridge. The Murphy girls had gone on to their home in Huntsville, when it is recorded that the soldiers were ambushed on the banks of Holman Creek. Eighteen of the soldiers were killed and records indicate they were buried on the banks of Holman Creek. Over the years many older people have stated that there were Civil War soldiers buried at this location. We believe that the fieldstones may very well mark the graves of these soldiers.
