Jemima Franklin McCoy Griffin Wakefiled lived here with Joseph and Mahala Franklin until her death in 1854.

It was quite an adventure trudging through shoulder high weeds and thorns to get to Jemima's grave. I had wanted to find my fifth great grandmother's grave site for many years because she was buried on what had been the farm where she lived with her second husband, William Griffin. I wanted to stand where she may have stood and look out on the rolling wooded hills she must have gazed upon - to share an experience that could bridge the almost two hundred years that separate us. She is buried next to William.
