Tombstone Tuesday: William M. & Lou Ann Grimes Mattingly

St. Charles Catholic Cemetery, St. Mary, Marion Co., Kentucky

William M. Mattingly was the son of Joseph James Wilson Mattingly and Susan Melvina Tucker. Lou Ann was the daughter of Lorenzo Grimes and Nancy Jane Chapman. She died on January 28, 1950. William and Lou Ann's daughter, Rose Lee, married Joseph Leslie Logsdon. Children of Rose Lee and Joseph Leslie were: Joseph Harvey, Agnes Pauline Smith, Robert Adrian, and Minnie Iola Phelps. Their oldest child, Joseph Harvey Logsdon and his wife Florence Edna Moore were my children's paternal grandparents. 

William's actual year of death was 1933. Headstone says year of death is 1934. Death certificate shows 1933 as the year. In fact it has 1933 in five separate places. The 'date filed' looks like January 2, 1934. He was apparently known by the nickname "Bill Rock" which is found in the St. Charles Boromeo Catholic Cemetery List compiled by Thomas Gerald Thompson on p. 54 under Lou Ann (Grimes) Mattingly's listing.
