Mary Elvira Yearry
Daughter of Young Henry Yearry & Nancy Bons Lackey Yearry

Born November 29, 1874
Died Between 1904 and 1905

Mary Elvira Yearry was the fourth child of Young Henry Yearry & Nancy Bons Yearry.

The grave of Mary Elvira 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.
