Tombstone Tuesday - Charlotte Jackson Lanier

New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery, Fredonia, Chambers County, Alabama
Charlotte Lanier
Born Nov 15, 1818, Died Sept. 25, 1892

Charlotte Jackson Lanier was my great great grandmother. She was the daughter of Samuel W. Jackson and Lavinia Malone. She married William Washington Lanier on 22 Oct 1835 in Meriwether County, Georgia and they had 11 children.

Her birth and death dates are both in question. The family Bible of her grandson, William Larkin Lanier, lists the dates as 3 Nov 1818 - 20 Oct 1892 instead of the dates shown on her headstone. It's impossible to say which dates (if either) are correct.
