Excerpt taken from the site developed by Willie L. Robinson regarding the rediscovery of the grave site of Solomon Obed Magee:
"As part of the 2000 Varnado Family Reunion activities, a visit was made on July 28, 2000 to the rural Pike County, Mississippi site where slave master Solomon Obed Magee (1816-1881) and other members of his family are buried. Mary Varnado Stewart (pictured at right) a great-granddaughter of Solomon Obed, found the missing part of his tombstone. It was located within five feet of the grave near a tree and it was covered with years of leaves.
Another tombstone covered with leaves was also found later that day. Although it has not yet been identified positively, it may be that of Solomon Obed's first wife, Mary Jane "Polly" Ellzey Magee, or one of his young sons, Jacob Obed Magee or Jeptha Obed Magee. Attempts will be made to identify the other tombstone, and locate others, on future visits."
