Marvin Cemetery

Marvin Cemetery
Travel Directions: From Corinth take Shiloh road north to Hwy 2/350; turn right and proceed past Cr 142 to a point of about 300 yards before reaching CR 143. This long abandoned cemetery can be reached by walking across a field to a wooded area to the right of Hwy. 2. There are many sunken unmarked graves. Apparently at least some of the unidentified graves are of the Marvin family.
