Tombstone Tuesday - Lucy Lula Bass

The tombstone pictured here is that of my maternal great-grandmother, Lucy Lula Trigleth Pettus Bass. She was born Lucy Lula Trigleth and married my maternal great-grandfather, William Elza Pettus around 1900. After her first husband died, Lucy remarried, and her grave stone shows "Bass," the surname of her second husband. Lucy was born on March 15, 1881 and died on April 7, 1951, and is buried in Coxburg Cemetery in Holmes County, near numerous graves of other members of the Pettus and Trigleth families. Lucy's grave marker is a simple rectangular stone, with engravings of palm leaves and the word "Mother" stamped on the top.
