The double grave stone pictured here marks the burial place of Evander Grantham and his wife, Evelyn, in Bluff Springs Cemetery in Carroll County, Mississippi. Evander was born in North Carolina in November 1846, one of ten sons of Thomas Grantham, a farmer, and his wife, Lydia Alice Woodberry. The family of Thomas and Lydia, born in North and South Carolina, respectively, also included two daughters, as well as Elizabeth Grantham, Evander's North Carolina-born grandmother. Although Elizabeth Grantham is buried in Bluff Springs Cemetery, Thomas and Lydia Grantham are buried in Old Plank Cemetery near Vaiden, Mississippi.
