Tombstone Tuesday
Thomas Taliaferro

Thomas Taliaferro
Born about 1844, Died May 04 1917
Son of Hilliard Taliaferro and Queen
Husband of Ann Lockwood and Bertha Welch Williams
Father of Tom, Jr., Roxie, Hilliard, Eddie B, Mattie, Henry, Annie, Frederick, Sallie, Vernon, Minnie, and Alfreda
Buried at Hunter Cemetery, Copiah County, MS

When I visited the cemetery, I did not note a marker for Thomas Taliafero's grave. He is likely in an unmarked grave.


  1. I notice he is still listed as married. :)

  2. Bertha, his wife, returned home from visiting her children. She was by his bedside when he died. I guess he was alright once his cook returned home.

  3. Men can be such babies. I'm planning a trip to Hazlehurst in the coming weeks. I've never been there. I want to see where my Taliaferro ancestors lived :)
