The acquisition of land and the first interments in Friendship Cemetery (which was planned with the African American community in mind) took place in the early 1920s. Several pages of photographs and historical notes make this a very attractive and interesting volume. A map section and an alphabetical index complement the block by block, row by row inscription list, compiled by Ashbrook in 2007. There is an epitaph section, as well. Because older temporary markers are damaged or missing, the 1969 list of markers, compiled by Inez Cline and Bobbie Jones McLane, is included along with a list of temporary markers placed in Friendship by Page Mortuary and a list of markers made by Hot Springs Monument Company which were delivered to Friendship.
