These inscriptions were updated with any exception found by C. Wayne Austin. This publication culminated from various sources. Listed on page 595-96 of the book Giles County Cemeteries by the Historical Society 1987. Added here 30 Dec 2013 by C.W.A. Findagrave.com has 114 of these 158 listings presented, but in some cases you will find an obituary and maybe a photo. Why the difference? We reported a few living individuals posted on a stone with a spouse. Also there were many stones missed whether on purpose or accidentally by the Findagrave.com crowd.
