Martin Cemetery

November 30, 2010

 

Front gate of Martin Cemetery

Martin Cemetery is located at the intersection of Highway 155 and Highway 507, across from the Martin Baptist Church.  The site is mostly what I can only think of calling “front loaded.”  Most of the graves are in the third of the cemetery closest to the gate.

Martin Cemetery shows some of the same features as the others I have written of to this point; it just doesn’t have as many of them due to limited burials.  We see the words of the deceased:

 

Song written by the deceased, B.L. Youngblood

 

Images of their interests and occupations:

 

Images showing a welder and a guitar

 

Footstones such as these more commonly show a name or nickname instead of a quote.

 

“This world is not a conclusion. A sequel stands beyond.”

 

One of the increasingly popular symbols in this part of the country is what I have heard called the “sportsman’s fleur de lis.”

 

The “sportsman’s fleur de lis” combines the images of a duck, fish and deer
