Searching for information on Sanders Vann (died 1846 in Twiggs Co.) and Mary Galloway Vann (1795 - 1902). Following is the obituary of Mary Vann:

THE MACON TELEGRAPH

JANUARY 30, 1902

MRS. MARY A. VANN DIED AT 107 YEARS

ONE OF THE OLDEST LADIES IN MIDDLE GEORGIA PASSED AWAY AT GRISWOLDVILLE, GA.

Mrs. Mary A. Vann, one of the oldest inhabitants of middle Georgia, died yesteday morning (1/29/1902) at 1 o'clock at her residence in Griswoldville, Twiggs County, at the age of 107 years.

Mrs. Vann was born in 1795, after the Revolutionary War, and has resided in Twiggs county since early childhood. She was known and loved by all the residents of the county. Mrs. Vann had a large number of great great grandchildren, and leaves three children as well as numerous other relatives to mourn her death.
Her children are, Mr. Reuben Vann, Mrs. Sarah A. Edmondson and Mrs. Maria Benhim, all of Twiggs County.
Mrs. Vann was a consistent member of the Baptist Church and attended all the services on Sundays at her church until she became so feeble that it was impossible.
The funeral services will occur this afternoon at 2 o'clock from her late residence. The interment will be in the family burying ground near Griswoldville.

Does anyone have information on a cemetery in the Griswoldville area with a Mrs. Mary A. Vann and Sanders Vann?
