Tombstone Tuesday - William Washington "Buck" Lanier

New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery
Fredonia, Chambers County, Alabama

Born Mar 15, 1813
Died Feb 11, 1892

Buck Lanier was my great great grandfather and according to his headstone, he died 118 years ago this week. There is a question about the exact date because the family Bible of his grandson, William Larkin Lanier, shows he died on January 28th. 

Buck was the son of James Lanier and Polly Smith. He married Charlotte T. Jackson on 22 Oct 1835 in Meriwether County, Georgia and they had eleven children.
