SOWELL GRAVES, BEAR CREEK PIKE, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE


Looking toward the lone memorial as you travel done the private road. When the road begins to climb a slightly upward stone can be seen very Well. It is seen from here 1200 feet away far out on the left under the yellow pointer placed on the photo as a gray speck. The old barn in the distance with the high sides were built for storing the annual harvest of tobacco when that crop of king in Middle Tennessee.

As we draw closer we can see the stone more clearly. Some of you may think it it overkill to detail this out in this manner. We need however to do this to find this stone if it falls and sinks below the soil surface. It will be difficult enough then just having to go there and probe below the soil with a sharp object to find the stone with all this documentation.
