MATTHEWS CEMETERY (Historic) SOUTHPORT, MAURY COUNTY, TENNESSEE


HANNA, Rachel Virginia, 12 Sep 1849-26 Aug 1851. 01-11-14. "Daughter of A. H. & M. J. Hanna." (Stone dislocated and lying under a tree with amongst a pile of stones. I scratched around in the pile of stones but did locate any other inscribed memorials but could not be absolutely sure there were not others. At one time I believe this was a box tomb and these were the base stones that have since fallen into shambles. Where the top is located I do not know, but this old Hanna family did not usually have the top inscribed, but inserted a small inscribed stone on the end like the one for Rachel.
