Noble-Gravier (St Paul's Catholic) Cemetery
Jefferson County,
Arkansas

Noble-Gravier St Paul's Catholic Cemetery
St Paul's is one of the earliest Catholic Churchs in Jefferson County. Once stood in front of this unmarked cemetery which occupies 6/10 acre. Highway 65 runs between the cemetery and the site of the Church building. The earliest burials in this cemetery were probably in the period 1830 - 1840. The Church was about 1851, before two acres were deeded in 1852 by Emma Kelly (Smily Callus), and was still in existence as late as 1878. Some tombstones that once stood here have disappeared and some graves were likley never marked. Arkansas was ruled by France, Spain and again France prior to the Louisiana Purchase of 1893, in 1819 it becames the Territory of Arkansas and achieved Statehood. People of early Richland Township were mostly French, German, Spanish
amd Indian. Then came the settlers of Sottish-Irish, English and Italian extraction. Resuling mixture of languages meant that many names had various spellings and pronunciations. Noble Lake and Noble Community were named for the Noble family.
