BIRDSONG CEMETERY (Tarpley Shop Road), GILES COUNTY, TENNESSEE

BIRDSONG, Adelaide Xantippe Abernathy - The Pulaski Citizen 04 Jul 1912

Mrs. Logan Birdsong, a prominent citizen of Giles County, was found dead in a barrel of water, at her home on
Monday afternoon, June 24. For some weeks, Mrs. Birdsong had been in poor health, and in a very despondent mood,
but was up and able to be about. Some of her children or relatives had been staying with her and her son had
just left her. The cook, who lives on the place, went up to be with her and found her in the barrel, head foremost.
The alarm was given at once and neighbors came to the rescue, but she was dead when taken out.
Mrs. Birdsong was the widow of Logan Birdsong and leaves several children, two of whom are Messrs. Neal and Tully
Birdsong of Pulaski. She was a good woman, highly respected by all who knew her. Services were conducted at the
home and the burial took place in the family burying ground.
