Deny.C.Lee.Hill, Beloved Daughter

There's a story here. I came across this tombstone in an old, old cemetary in Arkansas many years ago.
I don't even know if I can find it again, I think I know where it is located.
I hope it is still there.
I may take my grandsons down to see it.
Click on the photo to see a larger image and read what is engraved on the stone.
Quite the obituary.

There is a PBS documentary called "Silent Storytellers" that mentioned this grave marker. There was an article found in the Fort Smith newspaper of the day that told of the two men murdering the 4 year old girl in order to get everyone out of the house so they could rob it. But they were caught and the man named Forbush confessed. They were both shot after they escaped custody a few days later.
