Scott, Cordie, and I stood on Stout’s Point where Petit Jean State Park gets it’s name. While exploring this Arkansas State Park we found the grave site of what is thought belongs to a young French girl who disguised herself as a cabin boy to secretly accompany her fiance to the “New World”. She had become deathly ill and requested to be buried at this spot. Here, looking out over the Arkansas River, Blue Point, and Ada Vally you can almost understand her last request.
