Double Stone

Many hearts were bowed in grief when news came of the death on January 10, [1931] of Mrs. Nannie Lee Blackshear Grisham, at a hospital in Rusk, Texas, where she had been conveyed in an effort to prolong her life. She had suffered a lingering illness of some ten years.

The body was brought back to the family home on Blue Ridge to await the funeral hour. Services were held January 12, in the Blue Ridge Baptist Church, which was filled and overflowing with sorrowing and sympathetic friends and were conducted by Rev. R. H. Gibson. Interment was made in the Blue Ridge cemetery and the mound was literally hidden beneath beautiful flowers, gifts in loving memory of this one who has gone on to dwell in that beautiful land "the bourne from which no traveler e'er returns," and from which all sorrow and pain is banished.
From "The Hamilton Herald-Record," Hamilton, TX, 16 January, 1931.
