STRAYHORN GRAVE-MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE1967 Instructions, They Passed this way: Between Cross Bridges and Cedar Hill just north of the Hampshire Pike on the old English Place.
STRAYHORN, David W., Jan 1848 - 11 Mar 1849. (TS fallen & broken)
This cemetery listing was in the various books of the past. Mr. Fred Lee Hawkins in the book Maury County Tennessee Cemeteries listed this cemetery on page 689. He visited 13 Oct 1987. Before that it was listed in the book They Passed This way page A-153, about 1967. The writers there interpreted the birth date as 1818. I am inclined to believe Mr. Hawkins. The number "4" of old inscribed stones in this era often look much the same as the number "1" leaving easy room for error. Often the crossbar of the four is very shallow. [Wayne Austin 5 Nov 2008]
