Birth: May 29, 1879
Hopkins County
Texas, USA
Death: Oct. 27, 1952
Sulphur Springs
Hopkins County
Texas, USA

Son of William "Will" M. and Sarah Covington.

There is a significant difference in the death date on John's 1952 Texas Death Certificate, and this headstone, for which I have no explanation. I do believe they to be the same person. Death Certificate: John Henry Covington; Usual Residence: Cor. Main and Davis, Sulphur Springs, Hopkins County, TX; Place of Death: County-Hopkins; City-Sulphur Springs;Date of Birth-May 29, 1879; Date of Death-Oct. 27, 1952; Age at Death; 73 yrs, 4 mos, 28 days; Birthplace-Hopkins Co. TX; Name of Father-Will Covington; Informant-Mrs. Zelma Stubblefield (this would be his daughter); Burial Place-Shooks Chapel Cemetery, Hopkins Co. TX.
