    Biography Your mother, Emily Tennessee was the youngest child; her mother died when she was two or three years old.

    Your mother died of a disease of the brain. She was a member of the Church and, I presume, was a religious woman. She was praying while in her senses after she got sick. She was a good woman to me and I tried to be good to her. We lived as happily together, I presume, as any persons generally do and I think better than a great many do.

    I know she was a better woman than either your Aunt Virginia or Aunt Caroline. She had no enemies in Clarksville and, though I say it myself, we were on friendly terms with all and we associated with the best citizens in the town. While your mother was sick, we had more company than is common to see and when we started to the graveyard, notwithstanding I was afraid the guerillas would fire on us, yet there was a large procession. She was kind to the soldiers and there were a great many went to the burying.

    Your mother was buried in a nice walnut coffin about twenty or thirty feet south of where Jacob Roger's grave is. I paid Wyatt Massey to put a tombstone at the head of the grave. I was on a visit to Clarksville when I employed him and he could not get the work quite finished before I left for Little Rock.  [4
