Hi, Wayne. Today I was
revisiting the Shane Cemetery in Maury County, Tennessee----online of
I realized an error I had in my
Sarah Ann, 27 Jan 1825 - 12 Oct
1866. (Consort of James H. Campbell; dau. J.S. & F.M. Hunt.)
The Campbell Family Bible says
Sarah Ann Campbell died 1863. This is important since her
widower remarried in March 1866.
Thanks for all your tromping around
overgrown cemeteries getting the great shots.
My best shot at transcribing this tombstone:
Here lies the body of Sarah
Ann, Consort of James H. Campbell.
and Daughter of J. . . . .M.
Hunt born January . . 7th 1. . .
Died Oct 12th 186(3? or perhaps 5)
(epitah). . . triumphant in faith.
Hi Beverly. Good to hear of you.

My position of course is that the tombstone inscriptions are listed
on this site. However, when the tombstone is proven wrong. I will
post the exception note showing that.
I have found the original photo and manipulated it some (shown
above) for readability sake. Luckily the year date of death is
at least mostly verifiable. I can make out 186 and see that the
last number is not a 6 and I see a period in that last digit as
if it is in the beginning of a 3. This is enough to make me
reverse my position and state it is 1863 since all other records
verify that. I will qualify previous historians saying the
inscription is 1866 along with showing your proof of error.
When I did the Shane Cemetery I was new and had little knowledge of
how to prove out the inscription using photography. So in this case
I have no large format photo which verifies what the inscription
