Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.

"Clifton C, Son of JC & MJ Kaylor

Horn Cemetery, SE Madison County AR
Joel C. Kaylor and Martha Jane Kendrick were among the early settlers of Madison County. Clifton, one of their nine children, passed away in 1916 -- possibly of the influenza pandemic which swept the country that year.
There's deep history in these old country cemeteries. Late afternoon lighting on the monument made a compelling image.
