Grave Matters

Finally after a long hiatus I will be bringing you pictures of grave stones.  I visited the Nashville City Cemetery at 1001 Fourth Avenue South, Nashville, Tn. which was established in 1822. For the next few days I will be publishing some pictures I took.

Gravestone of a Mrs. Mary Mackenzie  Died September 15, 1853.

Gravestone of P.A. Black departed this life 19th day of November 1814  aged 16 years 10 months 12 days

Gravestone of Ferebee Black departed this life 17th day of January, 1845  39 years 9 mons 24 days  the mother of eight children

Robert Black 1844-1902       Ida Susan  1856 -1905

Margaret J. Bean  1836-1885

Ephraim H. Bean  1830-1899

Two pictures above are the grave markers for Harriet Neely
Sacred to the memory of Harriet wife of George H. Neeley
Born March 23, 1808
Died June 1, 1849
Possibly spelled Neeley

I hope this helps someone in their family search.  It is a lovely cemetery with many early stones.  Unfortunately many of the stones have lost their engraving.  Also, if you decide to visit this graveyard be aware that they do not allow rubbings.
