The Shelby County Burial Register indicates she died on Dec. 24 rather than the 25th. It also says her age was 22 rather the 24 as listed on the headstone. She died from pneumonia. According to the Elmwood Burial Index she was interred on Dec 25th so she probably did pass away on Dec. 24.


Inscription

Partial transcription since the stone is broken:
Margaret M. Wife of J.H. Mitchell
Ag'd 24 y'rs
Tho' cold in the dust
Her pulseless heart doth lie.
