WARREN GRICE, JR., 3 YEARS OLD DIES

MARSHALLVILLE, Ga., July 21. -- Warren, the 3-year-old son of Col. and Mrs. Warren Grice, of Hawkinsville, died here while on a visit to his grandfather, Mr. S. H. Rumph, and was buried in the cemetery here today. The parents have the sympathy of their numerous friends here and in Hawkinsville.

(You might remember, Mr. Samuel H. Rumph was mentioned earlier on this blog – for the letter O, as the Originator of the Georgia Peach Industry.)

I don't know who the carver was of this memorial placed for little Warren, but the detail is pretty amazing.  Just look at those toes!

Resting near Warren the younger is Warren the elder.  This Mr. Grice, a judge, was the son of Washington Leonidas Grice and Martha V. Warren.

"He that loveth his brother abideth in the light."

Though not directly related, I do have a connection to the Warrens Grice:  Senior is 1st cousin 1x removed of the husband (Silas D. P. Scarborough) of the sister-in-law (Martha C. Jackson) of my 2nd great grand uncle (William Henry Peavy).  Junior, of course, is 1st cousin twice removed…

Don't you love those genealogy rabbit holes?


Are you wondering what's up with all the "letter" posts? I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge (links to official page). This challenge lasts through the month of April, with Sundays off.  Each day follows a different letter prompt, in order, from A to Z.  Click here to see all my letter posts on one page (in reverse order). This blog as a whole is one of my themes – telling the tales of tombstones, primarily from those found in the Southern United States and usually the State of Georgia.  You may follow along with me by email and other social media platforms listed at the top of the sidebar.  I and other bloggers in the challenge on Twitter will also be using #atozchallenge.

Though this is my second year in the challenge, it's my first with two blogs.  I am also participating with Lincecum Lineage.  Though it is a one name study blog, my theme there is "kinfolk direct." These genealogy and family history posts all involve a direct relative.

Are you participating in the challenge, too? Please leave a link to your blog in the comments, I'd love to pay you a visit.  Good luck to all involved!

I think cemeteries are fascinating places, full of overlooked history. Tombstones definitely tell tales about how times have changed.

I wish I knew more about the history of my family. I don't even know where most of my family is buried after you go back a generation or two.
