Live Oak Cemetery, Selma ALMonday, October 08, 2007
We were in Selma this week so we stopped for a little bit at Live Oak Cemetery - it is just gorgeous:
The live oaks are just dripping with Spanish moss:
Right now the magnolias are dropping their seed pods - see the red-red seeds? The squirrels love to munch on them.
This is the monument of Drury Fair Jones:
Sallie A. Jones Featherston:
Sallie Ann and Drury Fair were sisters, and their father's will, that mentions them both, is here.
Alice Franklin (1842-1881):
Elodie Breck Dawson (1840-1877):
She was step-sister to Mary Todd Lincoln. There's a painting of Elodie at the Smithsonian.
Florida B. Kincey (1875-1899):
Mattie O. Blunt Keith (1858-1886):
