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 ]
