UPDATE: I am told that the referenced lady is: Maggie E. Flanary; b Mar 13, 1874; d Oct 23, 1901 (after giving birth to James M Slemp on Oct 1, 1901). Husband Hugh Letcher Slemp b Jan 4, 1859; d Apr 25 1913. Parents of Maggie are: James Monroe Flanary and Nevesta O Slemp. The information I received shows that they were both buried in the Flanary Cemetery on Wallens Creek, Lee County Virginia. However, it appears that she was buried on the family farm which is about 1/4 mile from the Flanary Cemetery. It is still a mystery as to why a corn crib would be built over her grave? (The preceding information was provided by Merrell (Slemp) Edwards and Ann Slemp)
