REESE'S CHAPEL CHURCH AND CEMETERY-MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
MILLS, Gideon, died 29 May 1829. No Birth Date. This stone is located out by itself up against the south Rock wall. This is the only person with an inscribed surname of Mills in this Cemetery. Maybe in 1829 Gideon Mills was not established in the community but passed away, or it is possible that he had other family members and they weren't supplied with a marked headstone. Well, I always wonder what a single family member with a stone out by itself meant, since the other established families tended to have assigned clusters of grave spaces.
