Her Life

Margaret Louise Neblett known as Louise, was born in Palmyra, TN, March 23, 1911. She was one of 12 children, daughter of William R. Neblett and Fredonia Elizabeth (Bette) Greene.   Her twin brother Marlan Louis Neblett and her mother died shortly after her birth. Her Father William Robert Lee Neblett remarried and had four more children. She grew up under the care of her step-mother, Annie Lou McCauley, and two sisters, Theo and Ora.

She lived in Palmyra until she married Marshal Hunter Nobember 9, 1934. She gave birth to three children, twins--Patrick and Patricia, and a son Fred, while living in Tennessee. About 1941 Marshal and his brother Louis Gold moved our families to Canton, Ohio. In 1946 she gave birth to her last child, Marlan.

She and Marshal lived in Canton until retirement. They then moved back to Clarksville, TN, to be close to family and the place they always considered home. She and Marshal remained in Clarksville until her death in l982. Marshal lived his last 18 months in Columbia, SC, with Fred. Both are buried in Clarksville. Most of her remaining siblings and relatives live in the Clarksville, Nashville area.

She has many interesting ancestors, including a line to President Abraham Lincoln and actor Tom Hanks.


Louise and Marshal are buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Clarksville, Tennessee. Her mother was a Greene, and many of these ancestors are buried in Greene Cemetery in Marion, TN. Many of the Neblett's are in the Myers Cemetery located in Montgomery County (near Palmyra), TN. Virtual Cemetery Links below:
