Eula Bessie Brown Burks
Birth: Jun. 16, 1888
Cobb County
Georgia, USA
Death: Nov. 1, 1971
Hanceville
Cullman County
Alabama, USA

My Grandmother-daughter of Hiram and Almedia Gann Brown Came from Georgia to Alabama as a baby in a covered wagon where she would later meet and marry her future husband who had also came from Georgia as a young child Alfred Burks. They were married on 10/25/14 by Rev. J.C. Moody at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Brown (Bessie`s parents). This union produced 7 children, 4 of whom lived to adulthood-the 3 babies who died in infancy are interred a few plots down from their graves, marked only by rocks. Their youngest daughter, Alla Bea, (our dear Mother) is interred in plot next to their`s.
Inscription:"Asleep in Jesus"

Many kind thanks to Faith3 for sponsoring my Grandmother`s memorial.
