** "Mary J. Childress is not buried in the Mooney-Childress Cemetery in Glendale, TN. Only her husband is buried where the tombstone sits. She is buried in Perry Mount Park Cemetery in Pontiac, Michigan. My grandfather, M. R. Childress, and Mary J.'s son, Hazel Childress had the stone put in the cemetery and just added her name to it as a memorial. She was living in Pontiac with her son, Hazel and his wife when she passed away. I do have a copy of her death notice as proof. Mary J. was my great-great grandmother. Signed: Martha Childress Proctor, 28 May 2008.
I (Martha) have supplied you with the above listing of all who are buried there in the cemetery with and with inscribed headstones. Except for the two inscribed headstones there, my grandfather put cinder blocks in place to mark all of the other graves including his father and sister."
This information was related to me (Martha) by my grandfather long before he passed away. I have a map of the cemetery that he personally drew showing me the places they were buried. His grandfather, father and sister is buried there among other of his relatives.) Signed: Martha Childress Proctor, 28 May 2008.
