  • Notes 
    • Another descendent of this couple wrote concerning the remembrance of Mr Harry T Hill concerning the return of the body of Lydia Conley May to Floyd County for burial:

      "It was the first time I had ever seen so large an electric light and it made a life long impression on me. I remember them taking the body by wagon up Abbott creek to Bonanza for burial beside her Husband."

      Lydia was living with one of her children in Pulaski County at the time of her death. A picture of this couple hangs in the Bonanza United Baptist Church.
