Tombstone Tuesday – Churchwell Branch Tucker

Churchwell Branch Tucker was my four-times great-grandfather.  He married Rosamond and they had ten children.  They are buried just south of Spring Place, Murray County, Georgia at the cemetery of New Prospect Church, where C. B. was an active member during his life.

This stone has deteriorated badly in the last few years.  I found a photo at Find-a-Grave from a few years ago and the stone was still upright.  When I took the adjacent photo a few months ago, the stone had broken and is now lying flat on the ground.

Fortunately, the inscription is still quite legible and reads:

C. B. Tucker
Born
Apr. 30, 1805
Died
Aug. 11, 1882
