MORRIS CHAPEL CEMETERY OBITUARIES



LEMM, MARY ANN

(Her death certificate in the Morgan County Clerk's office shows that she was a widow, that she was born in New York State, and that she died 8 March 1910, aged 94 years 11 months 28 days. Her burial site was given as the Smith Cemetery. The Jacksonville Journal of Thursday, March 10, 1910, carried the following news item under the heading of Crackers Bend, which in earlier days was the name applied to this area, but is seldom if ever used now. Crackers Bend received a post office on June 23, 1892, but it was discontinued in 1893.)

Jacksonville Daily Journal, Thursday, March 10, 1910

CRACKERS BEND
Grandma Lenn (it should have said Lemm) is very sick and there are no hopes for her recovery as she is exceedingly aged. Her daughter, Mrs. W. W. Peters, of Jacksonville, is with her, doing all she can for the comfort of her old mother.
