As a piper played "Amazing Grace," a respectful crowd gathered Thursday afternoon at Kirkpatrick Cemetery off Arkansas 5 North in Bryant for a ceremony to dedicate the hallowed spot that had fallen victim to neglect and was nearly lost from history.
The Bryant Historical Society hosted the ceremony that resulted from the efforts of Bryant Alderman Steve Gladden, a past president of the society, and other society members.
The current generation of the Kirkpatrick family was unaware of the cemetery's existence, according to Patsy Kirkpatrick Kuhn, who participated in the event.
