YOKLEY CEMETERY, (Hwy 245 & Smith Hollow Rd) GILES COUNTY TENNESSEE

"SACRED to the Memory John / Y Abernathy born Nov 27, 1798 died Oct. 29 1849."
I am unaware of why the slanted line follows John. It is likely an error by the stone inscriber and we chose to ignore it. Photo by Wayne Austin. 21 Dec 2009.
