JACKSON COLLEGE CEMETERY-MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE-SPRING HILL


 

GREENFIELD, Keren T., died 20 Jun 1832, in 23rd year. "Wife of Dr. G. T. Greenfield and daughter of Col. James T. Sanford." The stone of Keren T. Greenfield was below the ground about 2 inches.  I found it on 11-8-03 and uncovered the top and transcribed it. The top was completely lost under brush and the ground but the parts are all there and can be reassembled. This stone is next to the box tombs of the prominent Sandford family and in between the infant box tomb of T. S. Greenfield and two of what may be unused grave plots. Evidently the Infant & Keren died as a result of childbirth but not at the same time. Inscription: "Here lies the body of KEREN T. the wife of Dr. G. T. Greenfield and daughter of Colonel James T. Sandford. Who departed this life 20th June 1832 in her 23rd year. She was beloved by all that knew her. She was an affectionate wife fond mother and a dutiful and firm believer in the Christian religion." Photo & info by Wayne Austin 11-22-2003. Listed in MCTC.
