Soapy Smith's grave: 1950s.

The above postcard shows the fourth grave marker known to have graced Soapy Smith's grave. The date is currently not known when this specific marker was erected. The postcard appears to date from the 1950s. This marker was replaced in 1997 by Jim Richards at my direction, with a replica of the second marker. At the time it was believed the second marker was the first one. You can read about the history of the markers on the main website page, Soapy's grave markers.
