Bells and Dotsons

From Blue Heights Baptist Church Cemetery at Mountain City, Rabun County, Georgia:

Ferber A. Bell (1879-1922) and Tobitha D. Bell (1883-1923)

I uncovered Tobitha's death certificate at FamilySearch.org. (Her first name was indexed as Tobeeka.) From this document I learned Mrs. Bell's cause of death was pulmonary tuberculosis, and I also learned the names of her parents. Tobitha was the daughter of Henry B. Dotson and Rebecca Speed, both being among those at rest in Blue Heights Baptist Church Cemetery.

H. B. Dotson (Oct 13, 1851 - Oct 23, 1920)
Rebecca Dotson (July 20, 1850 - Dec 6, 1918)
