RISE/RICE-WARDEN CEMETERY-MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE-CAMPBELL STATION

WARDEN, James Born June 2 1775 & Died February 27, 1832 He was found as a tax payer
in the 1810 reconstructed Census. When this 1990 photo was taken trees threatened the stone,
but have since fallen or been cut away. It is believed by some that James wife Mary was interred
here in an unmarked grave. However some believe that she was interred in the Shane Cemetery
in what is now an unmarked grave or the grave is marked with eroded memorial no longer readable.
This is a 1990 photo by Wayne Austin
.

This is the same James Warden memorial with the lettering graphically placed on the stone.

Listing & commentary by Wayne Austin, 15 Dec 2002, revised to add photo made 21 Oct 2010 by Trish & Nick Boone of Mt Pleasant Tn.

Footstone on the east side of his grave of James Warden initialed as: "J.W. being helt up by Nick Boone."
This foot stone has been damaged by the large trees you see here. When I first visited this cemetery in 1990 this stone was standing. There were no trees standing here at the foot of James' grave then. There was one by James's headstone and it was a small Maple that died or was cut.
