Family oral history indicates that he was buried here. A headstone has not been found. We have this information from Scot Stout 'Hello. I thought you might enjoy a
little more information about Oliver Spinks. He died while his son, Nelson, was in the marines. When Nelson got home, he put up a concrete marker, but it was later destroyed by vandals.'
Oliver was the son of Capt. John English Spinks and Hanna C. Seals Spinks of Loachapoka, Alabama. Husband to Lela Martha Cummins and father to 11 children
