This lone burial from years before Kansas became a state, now lies unnoticed beside a highway.
When K7 was built, the iron fence was erected to protect the marker.
F. M. and E. F. Smith
Born Nov. 15, 1856
Died Aug. 30, 1857
I often find flowers, toys, and other evidence of visitors.
In the summer the fenced in area fills in with growth.
