Tombstone Tuesday - Salem Cemetery

Salem Cemetery is located in Salem, Lee County, Alabama at the Salem United Methodist Church. It is about 10 miles south of Opelika on Hwy 280E (The GPS coordinates for the cemetery are 323554.185N - 0851429.761W.)

My great-aunt, Hettie Eugenia Lanier White McRae, and several members of her family are buried in this cemetery. Hettie was the daughter of Joseph Smith Lanier and Nancy Jane Bennett. The list below is not a complete inventory of the cemetery but is simply the markers I photographed. Links go to the photos.

Mary White Scott (Hettie's daughter)
James Reese Scott, Jr. (Mary's husband)
Kathleen White Neely (Hettie's daughter)
Roy Cleophas Neely (Kathleen's husband)
probably Susie Eugenia Scott (Mary's daughter)
