German & Zannie Died Just One Month Apart (This Time It's Personal)

Brownwood Cemetery in Sandersville, Washington County, Georgia is where a few of my cousins were laid to rest. Two of them were German Fields Womble and his wife Zannie Peavy Womble. They were united in marriage in the year 1913, and they both died in the year 1969 -- only one month apart. G. F. died the 30th of August, and Mrs. Zannie died the 30th of September. Here are their obituaries from the Augusta Chronicle (Georgia).

Love your cemetery blog. I found it by searching the cemetery blogs at Geneabloggers.

Just added it to my Google Reader, and my links on my genealogy and cemetery blogs.
