Rocky Bottom, Sept. 15, 1906. -
Please give me just a little space in your valuable paper to correct an error seen in the Sentinel-Journals' last issue.
There has been quite a mistake in the burial of Mrs. Abigail Chappell. She was certainly buried at Rocky Bottom Baptist church. I was there and alid off the grave and helped dig it. Got the head and foot stones. As to the age of Mrs. Chappell I have no information to be positive, but I and some of her children made accounts as best as was known, 102 years.
Re. L.L. Powell conducted the funeral services of Mrs. Chappell instead of Re. J.E. Galloway, of Toxaway, N.C.
