Description of Memorial:
A brick table built to carry a small marble wall of remembrance. I was told the bricks were from an old building in the downtown area, reused here. Accented with rough rock from nearby creeks. And resting proper on a concrete pad. The memorial is dead center in the courthouse lawn, on the Jackson St. side.
