      I do not know if Rebecca is buried on the farm or not but do remember my dad taking me to the home place and pointing up the hill and saying that is where Alf Hennessee is buried and there is a little colored girl buried there to who lived with them. When I talked to my grandma Minnie Hennessee, Alf's granddau. she also told me that Alf was buried on the farm and there was a little colored girl buried there to. I asked grandma several times if she was a slave and she would say no, she was a servant. I few years later while going through some books on Cherokee Indians I read where they owned slaves but referred to them as servants, Bingo. I see where my notes say Susan was buried there also and that was done back in 1980's so will leave it at that as 20 years have passed and that was written just after I had interviewed grandma.
