Tombstone Tuesday: Saphronia Peavy


This broken tombstone is what's left of a memorial for Saphronia, wife of Jesse C. Peavy. Along with some nearby pieces, it reads:

SAPHRONIA
PEAVY
Died
Aug 1, 1894
Aged
40 Years
_________
Here lies one who in this life,
Was a kind mother, a true wife.
She was by many virtues blest,
And piety among the best.

Saphronia is buried in Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery; Dooly County, Georgia.
