There is a single grave at this location. Reuben Matthew Phillips was found several days after he had been murdered. Because he had been dead for a while and the body was badly decomposed, he was buried in a grave near the house where he was found. Family members who found him wrapped him in a sheet, dug a grave, and buried him.
This grave is located in the Southeast Quarter of the Southeast Quarter, Section 2, Township 16 North, Range 25 West, which is the old Phillips homestead.
Directions to find this grave: From Huntsville go east on Highway 412 for about 10 miles to Marble; turn right onto County Road 2405 and go approximately 4.5 miles to the junction of County Road #2405 and #2400. (there will be a large "junkyard" on your right just before this junction).
Stay left on County Road #2405 which goes up a hill. There will be a sharp curve in the road to the right and then a sharp curve to the left...this is like a "S" curve. Just before the second curve, there will be a private driveway which turns to the left. The 911 address on the mailbox is 3387 Madison 2405. Turn into this driveway and go about 100 feet. The grave is located off to the right of the driveway just about 20 feet inside the fence.
