Sarah M. (Sallie) Broughton Gilbert. She was born November 5

The Gilbert place was on the south side of the Tibbee, down the
Starkville Road. Her grandson Henry Clay
This is a pan shot of Lot A-107. You can see Sarah's tombstone
in the front with what we think are foot stones between her grave
and Henry Clay Gilbert's grave which has the broken stone.
Stacy Ellis Gilbert, wife of Zachary T. Gilbert. Below is her
brother John Cavanah Ellis. On one side is Stacy and John's father
Doctor Daniel Ellis and his wife Susan Holbrook Ellis. On the
other side is is Alfred Burrell Ellis and his wife Lillian Ellis.
Some day I hope to research the Ellis family more, it appears
they made a great contribution to Oktibbeha, Lowndes, and Clay
County. According to the 1880 Census, Dr. Ellis ran the Poor
House. His Daughter Stacy and her Husband Zachary lived next
door but were apparently not inmates. Zachary and Stacy had a
daughter named Minnie May Gilbert and I have been unable to find
out what happened to her. Their son Henry Clay Gilbert, named
after Zachary's brother, is buried in Lot
