Fannie Criddle is listed in a transcription of the Richard Hightower Cemetery by Sue Owen, Frank R. Owen and Mrs. Joe Bowman included in the book "Directory - Williamson County TN Burials, Vol. 1" (pub. 1973). The date of her death, as given in this transcription, probably came solely from a deposition given by Ann Ballow in 1832 "to the best of her recollection" and not from a stone. The book, "The Kith and Kin of Capt. James Leeper and Susan Drake His Wife" (Nell McNish Gambill – pub. 1946), gives the information that one of the children of John Criddle and Elizabeth Smith was Frances Criddle – b. Dec. 25, 1787 d. Sept. 29, 1806. This was probably the Fannie Criddle stated by Ann Ballow as to have been buried in the Hightower Cemetery. Elizabeth Criddle was a sister of Sarah Ewing, Nancy Hightower and Alexander Smith. Mrs. Gambill noted that it was Alexander's bible that was the source of the name and dates of birth and death of Frances Criddle. Only 4 graves are still marked in the Hightower Cemetery. If Fannie had a marker it is probably in the stack of broken stones and slabs at one end of the small cemetery.
