This large monument stands in the shadow of a century-old magnolia tree and marks the Shrock family plot in Hillcrest Cemetery. Although deceased members of this family are buried in other cemeteries in Attala and Madison Counties, this cemetery in Goodman in Holmes County appears to have been a more common burial place for family members who died during the 1900's.
During the next several days, I plan to write a series of posts on Mississippi Memories about this well-known Attala County family and its Madison and Holmes County connections. Be sure to check back here on Cemeteries of Dancing Rabbit Creek for photographs of grave stones of some of the Shrock family members.
