Note from CEB:
Does not state Oconee Hill, but tombstone is located in the Luther Epps plot. In December, 2006, Connie checked with the sexton at Oconee Hill Cemetery. This plot is for 12 persons and currently six are buried there. Their nephew Jack Couch told me that great Uncle Will Henry Epps was buried with great Uncle Luther and great Aunt Bertie Epps in their plot in Oconee Hill Cem. Three Couchs married three Epps.
Luther Epps married Bertie Couch., William Henry Epps married Callie Couch; Lucy Belle Epps married Howard Dewey Couch.
Bertie, Callie and Dewey Couch were siblings.
