Smithland Photo Safari

14 May

This grave marker is for a person who died in February of 1877 at the Little Sioux Cemetery outside of Smithland, Iowa Saturday, April 29, 2017. It’s hard to imagine what the surrounding hillsides looked like then. If the area was still prairie or woodland and how many residents lived in Smithland at the time of its founding by O.B. Smith in the early 1850’s. (Photo by Jerry L Mennenga©)
