Looking for the grave site of Mettye Rose Gillespie,, bought 2 acres of land in 1926 from a Mrs. Bowen of Cockrum area. In 1938 the same land was purchased by Mims Elder of Cockrum area, Her sister's obituary mentioned an M. R. Gillespie as living in Cockrum, Ms. Mettye donated her house to the church she went to upon her death which was approximately 1948-51. She was from Duck Hill, Ms. and her parents were Henry Calvin and Mary Julia Rose...she was born in 1884//any leads would be helpful.
