New Stones for Graves - 2003
           

During the past few months, individuals have purchased a number of stones for graves without markers. Some of these are not listed in "FOOTPRINTS." You might like to add these to your copy.

               

               

Linda Coppock bought and placed a stone at Robert Lett Cemetery for a Slave Child buried there during the Civil War years. This was the first burial at this cemetery. Margaret Freemon purchased stones for two Carr babies (Cleo, 1894, and Infant Carr, 1892), children of James and Emma (Perry) Carr. All are buried at Isaac Shelby Cemetery. A memorial stone was placed for a third Carr child, Ester, 1909-CA 1913. Margaret had stones placed at Big Barren Memorial Cemetery for Preston and Melinda Needham Carr.
