The Smith Family Cemetery

Rick and I walked through this cemetery the other evening. There was such a peaceful feeling there and the river looked so beautiful. These pictures really don't do it justice. You just need to come see it for yourself!
The grave monument for Joseph, Emma, and Hyrum Smith. That is Joseph and Emma's homestead on the left and straight ahead is the Nauvoo house which was never finished.
It was nice to see these new monuments for Joseph's mother and father. The last time we were here, there were just some very old ones that you could hardly read. was neat to think that those old ones were probably the original ones. There are several Smith family members buried in this cemetery.
