History

Oak Cemetery in Fort Smith, AR is as old as the city itself. The oldest monument, dated 1842, the same year Fort Smith was incorporated, marks the grave of Captain Gookin. It is the resting place of at least twenty-eight outlaws hanged by Judge Issac C. Parker and several more that were sentenced to hang but died in jail. Also interred are over a hundred Marshals, Deputies and Court appointed officials, some of whom lost their lives while serving the cause of justice. Also buried here is the Founder of Fort Smith, an Arkansas Governor, fifteen Fort Smith Mayors, and a hundred twenty-two confederate soldiers. The thirty-acre facility is under the perpetual care of the City of Fort Smith's Parks and Recreation Department.
