I noticed discrepancies.
Solomon Peacock and Sarah Jane Elefair (McClellan), (Peacock). (Knight), Kendrick were my great great grandparents. I found their gravesites in the early 90's.
According to my memory and records, Sarah J. Kendrick is buried between husband number 1 on her left, Solomon Peacock, and husband number 3 on her right, E. G. Kendrick. Husband number 2, George Washington Knight is buried in Southport, Florida.
The discrepancies between my records and yours are these: My records show the name "Kindrick" spelled "Kendrick". Also, you have Mr. Kendrick's initials as "E. B". I show them to be "E. G." He was called "Gene". Beside his name you show him as "husband of J. E. Kindrick". He was actually "husband of Sarah J. Kendrick" as I said above.
 "I know the work that goes into doing these surveys, because I've left my footprints in many cemeteries and have been on the typing end of it too."
Sincerely,
Kay (Dillard) Addy
P.S. My Grandfather, Solomon Arthur Dillard, maternal grandson of Solomon Peacock is buried in Chipola Cemetery in Altha. My father, George Green Dillard, was the sixth child of Solomon Arthur Dillard and Ransey (Harrell) Dillard. He was born and raised in the Altha vicinity.
J. Troy Peacock (deceased), paternal grandson of Sarah Jane Elefair McClellan, Peacock, Knight, Kendrick who is buried in Page Pond Cemetery said that his Grandmother Elefair married three times, raised three families and gained her second eyesight at age 84.
Sarah Jane Elefair Kendrick is buried between her first and third husbands, Solomon Peacock and E. G. ("Gene") Kendrick. My only information regarding her second husband is that he was a Knight and that he was murdered. Elefair and Mr. Knight had a son, George Washington Knight. He is buried in Southport, Florida. Family members say that Uncle George was an excellent carpenter who built his own casket years before his death. He kept it on the porch in the summer and in the parlor in the winter. My brother, George Dillard, remembers seeing it on the porch.
Kay Dillard Addy, paternal great great granddaughter of Sarah Jane Elefair Kendrick

Please don't sing sad songs for me, Forget your griefs and fears, for I am in a perfect place, away from pain and tears, I'm far away from hunger and hurt and want and pride. I have a place in Heaven with the Master at my side, my life on earth was very good as earthly lives can go, but paradise is so much more than anyone can know. My heart is filled with happiness and sweet rejoicing too. To walk with God is perfect peace, a joy forever new.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For a part of us went with you the day God called you home. He saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be. He closed his arms around you and whispered come to me. For all you went through, he saw your need to rest. God's garden must be beautiful , He only picks the best. - Loving you and missing you so much, Mama, Daddy, and Summer
