MATTHEWS CEMETERY (Historic) SOUTHPORT, MAURY COUNTY, TENNESSEE  

PERRY, Alvin Simpson, 1912 - 1 Nov 2004 in Columbia, Tn. (Maury Co. native; son of John Simpson Perry and Polly Hanna Perry; mar. 54 years to Helen Baker Perry; preceded in death by sister Kate Perry Gilbreath.)
We are looking at the fresh grave of Mr. Alvin Perry whose family chose this old historic graveyard over all the modern ones around. The continuation of the use of a cemetery for burial is the best way to ensure a cemetery will be maintained and this one has expansion space.
