More about the stone
Photos before the new stone

Visited again in 2006

Though it was thought too difficult to lead guests at the reunion on a tour to the graves of our common ancestors on Shelby Creek, Marquita Otis and her sister Barbara Sue braved the briars and bushes on the hillside leading up to the site and took the following photos of the new gravestone that was placed there with the generous support of many descendants.

The new stone placed behind the original stones at the graves.

Note the DAR Revolutionary War plaque in the foreground.
