OLD BEAR CREEK CEMETERY, MAURY COUNTY 1807-1836, MARSHALL COUNTY Aft. 1836.
Our focus is on the stone next to the Cedar tree trunk. This tree was dead in 1986 when Mr. Fred transcribed this cemetery. That should tell us just how durable this lumber is 22 years later.
LOWRANCE, Martha C., 14 Jan 1826 -7 Dec 1828. (Tombstone embedded in hugh cedar tree.)
