Someone told me about a grave in the woods north of Falcon. After talking to people who lived nearby, I was able to locate it. It is a beautiful old tombstone with nice ornamental sculpture. It is located in the SE1/4 NE1/4 of Section 32, Township 14 South, Range 22 West. It is about 500 feet from the east line of that forty and about 100 north of the main woods road through Section 32. The property now belongs to Deltic Farm and Timber Co. and is a mature pine forest at this time. The road is blocked with a cable at Hwy. 53.
UPDATE-- I checked the grave 2-17-2005 and found the grave marker had been broken (probably from logging). I flagged the grave and GPS'd the location, but I fear this grave will soon be lost. I returned a few days later and marked the grave site with an iron pipe about four feet high and painted white.
