Birth: Feb. 4, 1821
Mississippi, USA
Death: Oct. 23, 1882
Tate County
Mississippi, USA

Daughter of James Greer and Elizabeth Morgan. Wife of Allen Massey. Mother of 12 children.

Note: - Marjorie C. Davidson provided the following information. It was told by Mildred Nestor. During the Civil War Susan transported cotton to Memphis, Tennessee from their home in Mississippi for the Confederate cause. She concealed the cotton from the Yankees by covering it and piling her children on top, saying to the Yankee patrol that she was trying to get her children to a safe place as the war was too close.

Obit Of Susan Tillery Greer Massey

The Tate County Democrat, Senatobia Nov 3, 1882 Died on Monday at her home in the County Susan T., wife of Allen A. Massey, age 63 years. Deceased was among the Pioneer Settlers of the Chickasaw Cession and was intimately acquainted with all the trials that beset a pioneer life. Early in life she linked her fate with the man of her choice and continued to soothe and ease his labors until the Archer had drawn his bow with unerring aim. A husband and large family are left to mourn their loss. But what appears to be their loss here, be her eternal gain, and we are the more hopeful of this because the deceased led a life consistent in its kindness to others and appreciation of the benefits that flow from and accountability to the Supreme Being. The war of life is over for her. She has crossed over the river, and can now rest under the shade of the trees. Note: Susan Tillery Greer Massey was the Daughter of James and Elizabeth Morgan Greer. She was born 2-4-1821 and died 10-23-1882. She is buried beside her husband, Allen Alonzo Massey, in the Perry Cemetery on Smith Road in Tate County.
