Marsh-Wiggins Cemetery

The Marsh-Wiggins Cemetery is located on the Sand Flat Road. You can get there by going from Tyler out Hwy 271 to FM 2015. Turn left and continue until you pass over I-20. Go 1.4 miles and turn right on the Sand Flat Road. The cemetery will be 1.5 miles on the right side of the road. It is located adjoining a building that was used for a car repair garage but has been abandoned. It is very overgrown and you will miss it if you are not careful.

There are some nice tombstones in the cemetery. The cemetery is very grown up and needs cleaning up. We visited the cemetery in February 2001 and some of these pictures were taken then and some were taken in August 2002. It is difficult to find the cemetery unless you know where it is located. there are many Marsh and Wiggins descendants who still live in Smith County. Are they aware of this cemetery and much it needs some "tender loving care"?

This seems to be the family cemetery of Peter and Margaret (Peggy) Marsh and William and Sarah Marsh Wiggins
