Charles Elmore Monroe

Yesterday I got an email from Susan Heath (descendant of Charles Elmore Monroe and Amanda Suddath's daughter Josphine who married William Tandy Sherman Hood). Recently Susan went to Jackson, Madison Co., TN to see if she could locate the death record of Charles Elmore Monroe and other information about him and his family members who lived in Jackson. Well.... it surely looks like she succeeded. She found a stone in Hollywood Cemetery in Jackson. Her reading of this moss covered stone was:

C.E. Monroe
May 18 1886-3 July 1908

Here also lies his daughter
Amelia E. Formby
Jan 24 1871 to June 23 1892

My best guess is that Charles birth year was difficult to read and the year should be 1836. I've invited Susan to this blog and if she accepts perhaps she will tell you more about her other discoveries in Jackson.
