Tombstone Tuesday - Cade-Smith Cemetery

This weathered and unusual grave stone marks the graves of Louisa J. Watson Cade and her second husband, W. R. Cade. Louisa, who are buried in Cade-Smith Cemetery located near Emory, Mississippi. The arch connecting the two columns is imbellished with what appears to be a cluster of grapes and a horn of plenty, and the names of Mr. and Mrs. Cade are inscribed on the bases that support the columns. According to the inscriptions, Louisa Cade was born on August 20, 1839 and died on January 27, 1905. W. R. Cade was born on December 12, 1825, and he died on February 1, 1875. The cemetery contains other Cade family members, along with several members of the Hampton, Pollard, and Smith families.
