Does anyone know who is buried in the STEPHENS Cemetery in Woodbury, Cannon Co. TN.
I am looking for the resting places of Elijah (Elizah) STEPHENS b-abt.1811 and his wife Martha WHITLEY STEPHENS b-abt.1818 NC. and Martha's mother Elizabeth WHITLEY b-abt.1795 TN.
I have no idea the year they passed.
Your help is most appreciated.
Thank you,
Nelda

The Cannon County cemetery book has a mistake as it lists Elijah Stephens JR while the tombstone is marked Elijah Stephens SR. This may make a difference to someone researching this family.

Thank you. I know that this book has numerous mistakes. I can only give source and quote from the book. Both Dekalb and Rutherford Counties also have books published covering cemetery transcriptions. Some cemeteries from Cannon Co. are, fortunately, also transcribed in these volumns.

I want to thank you again for the burial place information on Elijah and Martha STEPHENS.
As for the Sr. or Jr...I was in hopes that it would tell me that Elijah's father was also named Elijah, with high hopes I could locate Elijah's parents and where they are from. So this tells me they probably do not have the same first name with the Jr. error.
As far as error's go, there are many from anything that is transcribed, being human. I still have to thank the ones also for the work they did in transcribing, even with error's the info is helpful.
If anyone knows anything about this STEPHENS family, Elijah STEPHENS and spouse Martha WHITLEY STEPHENS, I would really appreciate the info on who their parents were and came from.
Martha's mother is Elizabeth WHITLEY.
Thank you again for your help and time...
