BAILEY (J.) CEMETERY, NEEDMORE, MAURY COUNTY, TENNESSEE

This is the Bailey Cemetery as I found it near a stand of Hackberry trees. The two box tombs belong to James & Elizabeth Bailey. James has the near one. On top of Elizabeth Bailey's tomb is an inscribed stone that thru oversight I failed to confirm the inscription. Undoubtly it is one of memorials for the Ricketts children interred here.

The James Bailey Memorial.
