"Jack". Son of Charles M. and Sarah Jane McMahan Gaddy. He married Dorothy Fox around 1907, they had 5 children: Leola, Charles, Raymond, Betty, and Harold. He left his family to find work in the General Motors plants in Michigan, where he met Gladys Dorothea Buchanan, 18 years his junior. They were married in 1923, and had 6 children: Dorothy, who died in infancy, Bonnie, John, Donna, Donald, and Gerald. Jack was a musician, and played banjo and fiddle in local bars while his daughter Betty would dance. Jack and Gladys were divorced in the late 1930's after the tragic death of their son Gerald (he was accidentally run over by his father's car) made Jack's drinking problem even worse. He was turning his life around and had been clean and sober when he was struck by a car while walking to the store on his 53rd birthday. The driver fled and was never caught.

Jack's stone was hand-carved, presumably by a member of the family.
