Mollie Copeland's Death was Very Sudden

Mollie E. was born 7 June 1854 in Henry County, Georgia to Mr. and Mrs. Shirley Green. She married Dave Thomas Copeland about 1873.  Mollie died the evening of 1 December 1929 in Locust Grove, Henry County.  Despite her age, death was unexpected.  Per her death certificate, Mollie

Died [of Paralysis] very sudden without medical attention in presence of witness.

She was laid to rest at Locust Grove City Cemetery.  At the time, this cemetery belonged to the Baptist Church.


Husband Dave was laid beside Mollie almost seven years later.  This cemetery also holds Mollie's daughter Gertrude (Copeland) Parr, who died 1939 at the age of 64.

Thanks, Pamela! I would have liked more time to visit at this one, too. Arrived in the early evening -- not enough daylight left before I had to leave.
