Note by James Pilkinton 1/28/2004,
Nancy Dickson was born in Guilford County, NC 7 Dec 1784 and died 14 Apr 1859 in Maury County (Culleoka). I believe her stone once read "Nancy Pilkinton wife of Larkin".) This is an 1850s era stone indicating the death was in that time frame which confirms Mr. Fred's & James Pilkinton's confirmation of the death date. I don't know who was carving that style stone in the Culleoka area in the 1850s, but they carved many that crumpled to dust in a hundred years. Shane Cemetery has a couple of these along with Friendship Cemetery also, by Wayne Austin
