see map info above for lat/long. Sunnyside Road, Crewe, Va
To reach the graves of Mary and her husband, Col. William H. Jennings, go to Route 460, and turn right on Route 617. Rt. #617 is on the right side of the golf course toward Blackstone. Drive past Watson School. When you come to a large fallen tree on the left side of the road, you follow a path through the woods. The path has been marked by rags tied on trees.
Deep in impenetrable woods, far from the country road, there is a slight mound of decayed rubbish where Col. Jennings' home, "Sunnyside" stood. A short walk brings one to the ancient burial plot. Other than a rather large grave stone, no other reminder of the sacred spot remains. Decades of weather have obliterated all trace of mounds of other days. But on the one remaining tombstone, one reads:
MARY JANE PULLIAM
