Frances Lucinda "Fanny" Lackey Yearry
Second Wife of Young Henry Yearry
Daughter of Robert Waid & Nancy Welch Lackey

November 22, 1850--November 11, 1902
Married March 1, 1888

Frances Lucinda "Fanny" Lackey Yearry was born in Wayne County, Tennessee, and came to Arkansas with her parents in the early 1850's. She was 37 years old when she married the widower of her late sister. She and Young Henry Yearry were the parents of one child that died young.

The grave of Frances Lucinda Lackey Yearry is one of seven Yearry family graves that is covered with a concrete slab. All of the graves were marked with marble tablet type gravestones, and the death dates ranged from 1887 to 1923. Sometime in the late 1980’s, Mrs. Mae Woodcock Hamlet, a descendant of the Yearry family, worried that someone would dig into the graves. As a result, she arranged to have truckloads of concrete poured into a patio like concrete slab over the graves. The tops of the gravestones protrude from the concrete, but the inscriptions are below the concrete and obscured from view. Mrs. Vera (Lane) Reeves had made a survey of the Galatia Cemetery in 1986, and the data from her survey is what is recorded here.
