Tombstone Tuesday - J. H. Marshall, Woodman of the World

J. H. Marshall's grave monument stands tall and seemingly unblemished by time in Broom Cemetery, near Coffeeville in Yalobusha County, Mississippi. According to the inscription, Marshall was born on Februry 25, 1865 and died on May 11, 1913. Palm leaves adorn the center section of the stone marker where Marshall's name and dates of birth and death appear. Like all Woodmen of the World grave monuments, symbolic logs bearing the Woodmen of the World emblem appear in a prominent place. This design is one of many others that appear on monuments provided for deceased members of the Woodmen of the World society and erected in Mississippi cemeteries during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
