No grave goes unadorned during Memorial Day week

The San Rafael Back Country Horsemen answered the Sun Advocates call to leave No Grave Unadorned. They chose three isolated grave sites to decorate.

The San Rafael Back Country Horsemen answered the Sun Advocates call to leave No Grave Unadorned. They chose three isolated grave sites to decorate. The first was a baby's grave in Hambrick Bottoms on the San Rafael River, near the former town of Wilsonville, Emery County. The second was the monument to the deadman who was found in Deadman Canyon (near the Centennial Mine) Carbon County. The third was the grave of Annabelle Marsing, who was buried on the Marsing Ranch overlooking the Price River about 8 miles northwest of Woodside, Emery County. The photo shows Frank and Priscilla Burton, Stan Martineau and Sara LaCrone at the Marsing gravesite. In the Thursday edition of the Sun Advocate the paper will give thanks to those that participated. (The latter gravesite is on private property and we did have permission to enter the site.) We enjoyed learning about the lives of these pioneers who paved the way for us.
