After some brush removal one can see at the bottom of the photo the Capt Thomas T. Greenfield boxtomb, next out is the fallen stone of James T. S. Greenfield and then last is seen the little small stone of James T. S.'s wife Frances Ophelia Greenfield.

This is the top section of the tumbled stone for Dr. James Thomas Sanford Greenfield, It is adjacent to the box tomb for Thomas T. Greenfield. Much of the memorial is buried under the ground and will need digging up in any restoration effort. His wife's Frances's memorial shown below is in back of us and also needs to be dug out, reset & cleaned. 

Frances Ophelia Potts wife of James T. S. Greenfield memorial after it was somewhat cut out of the brush.

GREENFIELD, Frances Ophelia Potts, 1847 - 1888, wife of J. T. S. Greenfield.
GREENFIELD, J. T. S. (M.D.), 17 Sep 1831 - 24 Sep 1899. (Son of Dr. Gerrard T. & Keran T. Sanford Greenfield.) (stone fallen, dislocated and covered in the dense brush with debris. This 500 lbs stone was face down and unable to be photographed)

Dr. James Thomas Sanford Greenfield, was born 17 Sep 1831, son of Dr. Gerrard & Catherine (Keren T.) Sanford Greenfield. He followed his father into the medical profession, graduated from the Univ. of Pennsylvania in 1851 and returned to his native Maury County to practice. He married Frances O. (Potts) Lavender in 1884, and they produced three children.

I wonder why the stone for Frances Greenfield has never been reported by previous researchers. Maybe it was buried in the soil when Mr. Fred Hawkins came thru here in 1987 or maybe the stone was set since 1987. The former statement is probably correct since this does not look like a stone that was set since 1987.
