BOOKER, (MERRIT M.) CEMETERY, CULLEOKA, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
BOOKER, Mosby L., died 25 Jul 1846. (16-02-20.) '3rd son of Merit H. & Martha F." (This tomb is broken into many pieces and buried beneath the ground. We can confirm the name and his parentage. Dates are from the readings of previous researchers in past years.) Remaining inscription: "Sacred to the memory of Mosby L. Booker third son of Merit & Martha F. Booker. _ _ _ Departed this _ _ _ 25 ......" (Was difficult to get the mud off of this piece to read it. It is hard for me to believe this stone was fully readable in 1963 and again in 1988. I believe the inscription was passed down thru the generation from prior to that somehow. The vines were so thick I could not find any more parts of this stone.)
