The Smith Prairie Cemetery
This picture is taken from the corner where the cemetery road meets the main road. If you were to continue out to the rim on this road you would come to the location of the first home owned by Donald Louis Davison, my grandpa. You can still see trees around where the house sat on the google maps satelite image attached to this post. The house was moved by Grandpa's brother, Lawrence long ago. This road was used when the Davison brother's divided up the ranch when the partnership broke up. All the flat land and Wiley Gulch to the right of the position of this picture was given to Grandpa. The Cemetery is surrounded by land that belonged to my grandpa.
Most of the graves in the cemetery belong to family members. You can view pictures of all the current headstones as of June 2011 on http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2262842&CScn=Smith+Prairie&CScntry=4&CSst=15.
