Mapping the Location
YORK, John S. (Solomon), 10 Feb 1861 - 30 May 1925. 0979/0980
YORK, Rhoda T. Tomerlin, wife of John S. York, 16 Feb 1851 - only date listed**. Married Aug. 1, 1880 to John S. York. Parents: John Tomerlin and Elizabeth Jane Winsett. 0979/0980
**Two possibilities are likely for this. (1) The husband died first and the stone was set with her information except for the death date, as she was still living and she chose to be buried elsewhere. (2) Since she died after him the usual conditions are the children were not as vigorous in getting the details inscribed on the stone as the wife was for the husband, so no one inscribed the death date.
