In reference to Homemaker's Survey of Nevada County Arkansas Cemeteries for the listing: Nance, Lewis, Birth: 12/25/1780, Death: 11/27/1865, Notes: Husband, Forest Hill Cemetery - White The date of death is 1 November 1855 for Lewis Nance. I have his estate file from Hempstead County which gives that date. The date of birth is the same as on his tombstone of which I have pictures (25 December 1780), but I am not sure from where "27 November 1865" comes.
References to an "earlier record" usually refer to a survey conducted in the 1950's by
the Nevada County Extension Homemakers' Clubs, the original of which is on file at the
Nevada County Depot and Museum.
Since 1997, Jery and Jeanie McKelvy have conducted a periodic canvas of each cemetery in
the county and use additional resources to keep the listings current.
