Tombstone Tuesday: Lone Pioneer Child

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.

Asa G.
Son of
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.
