Sherman County Surveyor E. B. Corning used these homemade concrete bricks for memorials. He also used concrete posts for section corners as shown in the second image. This memorial was uncovered by Steve Wessell at the N ¼ corner of Section 22, T15N, R14E on March 20, 2013. This location is along State Highway 92 approximately three miles southeast of Loup City, Nebraska.
