NOTE: Another Milam Co contributor has commented that her death certificate says she is buried at "Pleasant Hill". This cemetery is in the old Pleasant Hill community. There is also a nearby cemetery by same name. Reference to Pleasant Hill on certificate could refer to the community or the cemetery. This name was recorded as buried here in "Barber Cemetery" in 1993 by Norrine Holder Holman who visited the cemetery.

Possible discrepancy in transcription of name on death certificate could also be an issue - Barber vs Barker.
