Lafayette Spurlock

April 15, 1864

19y 7m 15d

This monument is broken from the base. The inscription for Lafayette faces up, but is heavily weathered and attempts to photograph in closer detail just didn't work out. On the foreground side is an inscription for his brother Andrew Spurlock; it is 50/50 obscured by being embedded in the ground.

Son of Andrew Jackson Spurlock and Polly A Smith Spurlock.
