Gravestones at Soldier Creek Cemetery – Marshall County

Today I would like to share with you some of the photos Ritchey and I took at Soldier Creek Cemetery in Marshall County.  The cemetery is located in the southwest section of the county.  If you take Hwy 58 south from Benton, turn left onto Hwy 1522 to find the cemetery.  Be sure and check out the last photo – Lizzie Smith lived to the ripe old age of 105!
