In Reply to: Tubb Cemeteries in DeKalb Co. TN by Lawrence Bass of 190

Quote from Paul Dowell Sr. found on page 854 of THE TUBB CONNECTION


"The court record gave a general idea of the location of the farm of James Tubb. Mrs. Lora Lee Laine, Mrs Ruth Simpson Moore, and many others searched the countryside for the location of the graves for James and Polly. Finally I talked with an aged kinswoman, Mrs. Frankie Gragson Moore, who recalled that a road over a hillside over which she walked to school as a youngster was near some graves that her elders had described as "some of our people." No sign of this road existed, but by fences I located where it would run. I searched undergrowth alonside the course where I thought the road must have run. Suddenly there rose before me four grave markers. They were leaning, and they had sunk into the ground. I was able to read three of them well enough to make identifications: James Tubb, Sr.; Mary "Polly"Tubb and Thomas Tubb. I could not read the inscription on the fourth marker, but since the marker was much like the one for Mary "Polly"Fisher's marker I assumed that it was Elizabeth's, the second wife of James Tubb. I also saw several limestone grave markers which I assumed marked the graves of slaves."

NOTE: Paul led a campaign to restore, preserve, and fence this cemetery.
