Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1826
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1898

Sinda Rilla was the daughter of James and Martha Presson, both born in North Carolina. James gave at least a portion of the land for the Post Oak Methodist Church and Cemetery.

Sinda Rilla married Marcellous Cain in Benton CO, TN on Jan. 27, 1843. The story has been passed down to descendants is Sinda Rilla met Marcellous at the "Ordinary" or "Inn" her parents ran, as a rest place for travelers. Marcellous was said to have been a stage coach diver for the stage coach that ran between Memphis and Nashville.

Marcellous, Sinda Rilla's husband died soon after her last child was born, and she raised the children on her own, with help from her parents, and siblings.
