Inscription:
. . . . . . . . . .
According to Ida Mae (one of Sam & Nellie's daughters) . . . "My father never married again again after my mother's death, and died when I was above fourteen years old. He is buried next to and on the right side of my mother, but there is no marker at his grave." A family historian has made the statement that she visited this cemetery with her father many years ago . . . and that at that time there were markers here for various members of the Hall family who originally owned the land where this cemetery is located . . . she is aware that those markers no longer exist . . . but does not know what happened to them.
