A Grave in Missouri

On an elevation in the small and very rural Howell Cemtery, near Milford in Barton Coounty, Missouri rests the grave of Urilla S. Earp, first wife of the legenday US Marshall Wyatt Earp. Many rare and special people are buried there, There are people who suffered and struggled in the Territory and then helped make the state. There are people who came later enjoying the fertile farm land. Still others who came to enjoy the peace and calm of rural Missouri. It's not an easy place to get to, rattletrap road and no signs make the trip a challenge. That is probably good because some people have a wicked desire to destroy and here is not the place to do that...Wyatt may occassionally come to pay his respects...and he was a stickler about folks who did not obey the law.
