*AGEE - CHRISTIAN MEMORIAL

Agee (aka Hasty) Cemetery
Newton County,
Arkansas

Posted inside window of house over Guffrey Agee's grave.

Agee - Christian
William N. Agee and Nancy Ellar Christian Agee had two sons die very young. One son was stillborn about 1910. The other son, Guffrey, died in 1914, when he was about two years old. Their grandfather, William N. Christian, built two little houses over the graves to protect them. He kept a splint bottom chair in the largest house. Every day he would walk two miles up the hill to the cemetery, take out his chair, sit and whittle and "be with the babies" until Evening".
