      I do not know if you know the story about Mary Wallace, daughter of Spinks and Nancy Ollie Ibby Canaday. What I have been told (from Grandma B) was that Mary had told Ollie that she was going to die and where she wanted to be buried, I think that she may had been around 7 or 8 when she died, The following is on the internet:

      NOTE: According to Mrs. Eula Mae (Richardson) Townsend, when Mary Wallace was a little girl, probably under 10 years of age, she told her mother that she was going to die, and that she wanted to be buried by this little bush she had picked out where this cemetery is now. She was the daughter of Spinks and Ollie (Canerday) Wallace. She was the first person buried here. [ back ]

      I am in the middle of transfering everything off of paper and onto my computer, it sure takes a long time. This is what I can give you right now.
