Two graveshelters in Agee Cemetery, Hasty, Arkansas ~ Graves of two young Agee children from early 1900's. Their grandfather, William N. Christian, built two little houses over the graves to protect them. He kept a split bottom chair inside the largest house. Every day he would walk the two miles up the hill to the cemetery, take out his chair, sit and whittle to "be with the babies" until evening. The old photo of the Agee family taken c.1915-16 is posted inside the gravehouse.
