Article: "in The Southern Baptist Messenger (1852)"; Author: J. Stringer. "MY REQUEST IS, that you would give a place in the Messenger to the following obituary notice of my very dear and affectionate companion, Nancy D. Stringer, who departed from the shores of time on the 20th day of September, 1852, aged 29 years, with the exception of two days. She was raised in Morgan Co., Ga. Her father and mother, (Alven and Rachel Myhand,) moved from Morgan county to Harris county about the close of 1839, with five daughters and two sons. Among that number was that dear daughter, who remained with her kind father and tender mother, until the 23rd of May, 1847, when she married to the poor bereaved writer, and lived with him as a very kind, tender, and affectionate wife, until the Lord thought proper to cause a separation; ("The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away, and blessed be the name of the Lord;") during which time it was her pleasure to make sacrifices, if necessary, for the comfort of her poor husband, and never rigidly crossed his inclinations. The loss of such a friend is great, but we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose, (and if I do not love Him, it is my soul's desire to love Him.) Lord help me!"

Bonnie Watson, Find A Grave volunteer, searched the cemetery in April 2013 and again in May 2013 but found no actual tombstone for Nancy Stringer. She did note though that there are a lot of unmarked stones in this old cemetery as well as stacked rock burial "vaults". Being an early death, it is possible Nancy Stringer may be buried in one of the "vaults" but no initials could be found on the "vaults" confirming this theory.
Nancy Dinkins (Myhand) Stringer is an unconfirmed burial in this cemetery.
