OLD BEAR CREEK CEMETERY, MAURY COUNTY 1807-1836, MARSHALL COUNTY Aft. 1836.
Our focus is on the stone embedded in the Cedar tree trunk on the end. It is a very old stone and its proximity to the dead tree makes it hard to read. This tree was dead in 1986 when Mr. Fred transcribed this cemetery. That tells us just how durable that lumber is 22 years later.
LOWRANCE, Martha C., 14 Jan 1826 -7 Dec 1828. (Tombstone embedded in hugh cedar tree.)
