NOTE: From Margarett Hollingsworth ~

I was in the Gravelridge cemetery on Friday May 7, 2004. I noticed these headstones in need of repair. Each month that goes by these stones get in worse shape. Soon there will be nothing left there to mark the place of burial.

Three headstones that are loose from the base, 2 have infant and 1 has son of J. C. and M. O. Belin (Jabe C. and Mandy Ophelia Belin?)

Headstone loose from base, Floyd son of R. B. and F. O. Byrd

Broken double stone, Merle son of H. C. and E. A. Pirtle and Velma daughter of H. C. and Velma Pirtle.

Broken headstone, Amanda I. Lee 1855 to 1877

Headstone loose in base, Isabelle Jane daughter of J. S. and A. I. Lee

Broken stone, Nora Ann daughter of Jas. and E. A. Pirtle

Loose in base, Thelma Doreen daughter of W. E. and M. A. Creed

Broken and loose in base, T. E. Smith 1880 to 1911

Loose in base Ada Lee daughter of B. M. and S. E. Brooks 1870 to 1880

Loose in base, Sarah E. wife of B. M. Brooks 1839 to 1903
