Note;
Edmond Thorn homesteaded this area prior to the Civil War, and the grave yard was named for his wife, Mahalia Barton Thorn, who died in 1854 and was the first person buried here. This fenced in, well kept cemetery is also the burial site or the infamous James Calvin Casharago, the last person hanged by Judge Isaac Parker at his US district court at Fort Smith, Arkansas (July 30, 1896)
