S. L. McEachern was born in Chester county, S. C., Nov. 12, 1828, moved with his parents at the age of seven to Georgia, and thence to Mississippi. He was married May 27, 1858, to Miss Margaret Dale, who departed this life Feb. 14, 1900. To this union were born seven children - five girls and two boys - all of whom survive him, except one who died in infancy. He served through the Civil War as member of General Hoods Army, in Company 1, 2nd Miss. Vol.
In 1870 Mr. McEachern moved with his family to Arkansas, where he died Feb. 6, 1909. He was a member of the Christian church for a number of years. August 15, 1871, he was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason by the E. M. Tate Lodge No. 320 A. F. A. M. of which he lived a worthy member, serving as secretary almost continously until his death.
(The monument was secured by the J. O. Shelby Camp # 1414 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Harrison, Arkansas, and placed in the cemetery, Memorial Day, 2009. Gordon Hale with the Camp supplied the photo.)
