Travel Directions: From Corinth take Shiloh road north to Hwy 2/350; turn
right and proceed past Cr 142 to a point of about 300 yards before reaching CR
143. This long abandoned cemetery can be reached by walking across a field to
a wooded area to the right of Hwy. 2. There are many sunken unmarked graves.
Apparently at least some of the unidentified graves are of the Marvin family.

fashioned wrought iron fence. The chills, Bettie R., is buried outside of the
fence, just to the left of Dr. Reeves and his wife.
Just 34-1/2 & 25 years old) died only about two months apart. Since the fence
enclosure is just large enough for the two graves, it would appear that it was
erected in 1888, or soon after Elizabeth and Dr. Reeves died, but before the
child died about five years later.
