Just a large stone that has W..S.Tackett on the top of the stone.
Think it might be William Sherwood Tackett, husband to Magnola Wells Tackett, who is buried nearby.

Magnola (Wells) Tackett, b. Jan 1, 1887 d. Oct 12 1944.
Was married to William Sherwood "Charmin" Tackett, son of Thomas Jeffrson Wilson Tackett.
Maggie was the sister to Claude W. Wells. William, her husband, was Thomas Henry Tackett's brother.
There is also a stone in the same cem. with W.S.Tackett on the top of the stone.
Wonder if this is her husband William Sherwood?
I heard he is buried elsewhere.

Magnola (Wells) Tackett, b. Jan 1, 1887 d. Oct 12 1944.
Araminta Serena Viars Wells, b. Sept 1 1862 d. Aug 8 1954,
mother of Claude W Wells, Willa Tackett's mother-in-law.

Rosie B. Tackett b. Dec 22, 1869 - d. Dec 31, 1945.

Stella Wagner Wells standing behind the grave of Margaret E. Wells Sundys & Billy Sundys.
Mother & Son. This grave is located next to Willa Tackett & Claude Jr. Wells grave.

Willa Mae Susan Tackett Wells ( 1896-1983) & Claude Jr.( 1923-1991). Mother & Son.
Notice the grave of Claude. The caretakers cannot get any grass to grow on his side.
It is totally barren and they have tried everything.
Even weeds won't grow there.
Claude Jr also has his name on the stone with my dad in San Deigo, Calif, where he was to be buried.
