Tombstone Tuesday: James H. and Sophia C. (Stone) Gatlin

JUNE 6, 1826
MARCH 13, 1890

APRIL 25, 1833
MAY 13, 1888

I took these tombstone photos when I visited Mount Olivet Cemetery in Nashville, Tennessee. Although I did not know who J. H. and Sophia G. Gatlin were, since they had my surname, I thought they might be related.

I have since discovered that J. H. Gatlin's first name was James. James H. Gatlin married Sophia C. Stone on 17 April 1856 in Stewart County, Tennessee. They lived in Dover, Stewart County, Tennessee in 1880. James died in Nashville.
