"Ab" - Cemetery records Vol III, Hardeman Co., TN related a story (ca 1992) that Mrs. Birdie Walton said was handed down from generation to generation. That being that one of the Crain men is buried with his new hat and shoes on. The Caddell Cemetery is located about Hwy 18 & Hwy 100 behind where Mrs. Walton lived. It appeared this house had fallen in at the time of my visit.
