I didn't see her name listed in the Shaver Cemetery list but did find these
Infant s/o J. W. & M. M Stubblefield 9 Jun 1884 - 28 Jun 1884
J. W. Stubblefield 7 Feb 1829 - 19 Jun 1886
Calico Rock Progress - Feb 20, 1920 - Mrs Mary Stubblefield Dead
Mrs Mary M. Stubblefield of this place, one of the oldest and best known
ladies of this section, passed away at the home of her son, G. M.
Stubblefield, last Sunday at 8 o'clock p.m., February 15, 1920, after an
illness of only a few days from dropsy and other complications. Until about
two years ago Mrs Stubblefield had been in comparatively good health but
since then her vitality has been on the decline, finally reaching the stage
where the best of attention and medical aid were without effect.
Mrs Stubblefield was born in Georgia Jan. 31, 1846, having reached the 74
year mark. She was the daughter of Rev. and Mrs A. J. Smith. In 1865 she was
married to J. W. Stubblefield, to which union was born six children, three
of who are dead. The husband died some 30 years ago. The family settled in
the vicinity of Oxford many years ago.
In the death of this Saintly person the community loses one of it's purest
souls and one who will be sadly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of
her acquaintance and association. She was one of those true believers in
Christianity who had the spiritual welfare of the community and those around
her at heart, delighting in every opportunity to do a kind deed for someone
and many are those who have been cheered by her kind teachings and many acts
of benevolence. Mrs Stubblefield lived a faithful member of the Methodist
Church, taking membership in early life and her influence was a strong
factor in all branches of church activity.
Deceased is survived by three sons, G. M. Stubblefield of this place, H. W.
Stubblefield of Oxford and W. H. Stubblefield of Mammoth Spring, a sister,
Mrs J. M. Shaver of Oxford and a brother, J. A. Smith.
Funeral services were held at the Shaver Campground Cemetery, near Oxford,
Tuesday morning by Rev. J. C. Gibbons of this place and Rev. Noel S. Chaney
