Last week when we reported the names for Section 2B, we mistakenly wrote that Connie Lee Hensley was an infant. Her tombstone is so beautiful and it had a single date on it. Charlene Singleton explained to me that Connie is a grown woman and very much alive. The date on her monument is her birth date. Charlene is a great source of “people knowledge” and I appreciate her very much.

In several rows in section 14C, there are double tombstones with husbands and wives listed. Sometimes a section division will separate them. In order to keep their names together in these articles we will list them in the same citation and then indicate the actual section following their names.

Section 14C: Hollie Barnard, Mother (9/4/1954-5/3/2005); Jobe Smith, Son (5/1/1976-2/20/2004); Glen Rice Barnard, Sgt US Army Air Forces WWII (11/12/1918-3/31/2010); Gerald J. Kiernan, TSGT US Air Force (9/15/1934-3/8/1997).
