This grave monument, located in Hillcrest Cemetery on the outskirts of the small Holmes County town of Goodman, Mississippi, stands tall beside the grave of Maggie Scarbrough. According to the engraving on her marker, Maggie was the wife of W. T. Scarbrough and died on December 15, 1898, at the age of 34 years, 8 months, and 1 day.
Although the grave monument itself is now over 100 years old, it is still in remarkably good condition. The broken pieces of a covered urn, however, can be seen near where it once stood at the base of Maggie's marker.
