Tombstone Tuesday - E. M. Mabry, Suqualena Cemetery, Lauderdale County, Mississippi

The inscription on this old grave stone in Suqualena Cemetery in Lauderdale County, Mississippi, includes the name "E. M. Mabry" along with the dates of birth and death of the deceased.

Apparently an error was made by the stone mason, since the date of death for E. M. Mabry is shown as February 30th.

February 30th?

What was E. M. Mabry's actual date of death? Perhaps it was February 20th, or maybe February 3rd. But it could not have been February 30th.
