History Mystery

Near the tiny town of Jennings, Florida, and far out at the end of a sand road The Old Lady discovered a cemetery on a bluff above the Alapaha River.

The oldest gravestone belongs to George Jennings, who might be assumed to have founded the nearby Jennings Plantation.

Alongside are the gravestones of his eight children, all of which specify their parentage as George and Mary E. Jennings…

… and also the stone commemorating Eliza C.A. Jennings, “Consort of Geo. Jennings”…

… but there is no stone to be found for mother Mary E.

A mystery story… and the details died along with the cast of characters.
