Commentary by Linda Yates:
Hattie was born Aug 29, 1912 and died Feb 23 1996.  She was the daughter of Gentry and Isabelle Rummage Galbreath.  She was married to Henry Fulton Nicholson who was born Aug 17 1893 and died July 6, 1970.  He is buried in the Hardison Cemetery. I Don't know if his grave has a marker.  If so, it's probably on that CD but I think I'd have remembered it if I'd seen it over there as I remember Hattie and Fulton Nicholson very well from my childhood. (Linda Yates)

Have you noticed the duplicate listing for Henry F. Nicholson and wife Hattie Gentry Nicholson in both the Jones Cemetery and the Charles Hardison Cemetery. Do you have any records that might tell me which is correct? They are both in my family tree.

Thanks for alerting me to these errors. I have analyzed this problem to my best as listed below:

The duplicate HF & Hattie Nicholson listings in Jones & Charles Hardison Cems were given me by two sources listed above. First it was listed that way with no notations in the book Maury County Tennessee Cemeteries, by Fred Hawkins in 1987. Secondly my cousin Linda Yates who died 16 Jan 2009 transcribed the Charles Hardison Cemetery and gave me the listings in that cemetery the way they are listed. She told me Henry F. was most likely there in an unmarked grave, Early on she was not sure if she just missed the marker. Later she concluded there was no marker.

I believe what happened is Henry Fulton is buried in the Charles Hardison Cemetery in an unmarked grave but Hattie is interred in the Jones Cemetery possibly in an unmarked grave also. However, in looking at all the above listings maybe both Henry & Hattie have a marker in Jones Cemetery. I do not know because the survey for the Jones Cemetery (on my part) is incomplete. Hopefully I can complete that cemetery sometime in the future and settle that issue.

The listing in Mr. Fred's book in the Jones Cemetery appears to represent marked memorials. Henry Fulton is listed with death and birth dates including maybe a military stone and at the time of that transcribing Hattie with a birth date but no death date since she was still living then. (1986).
