Tombstone Tuesday: Benjamin A. Lampp and Tabitha Tapley Lampp

Benjamin A. Lampp
born March 12, 1866
died February 23, 1938
son of John Vining Lampp and Mary Ann Page Lampp

Tabitha Tapley Lampp
born March 10, 1875
died July 3, 1956
daughter of James Madison (Jim) Tapley and Rebecca (Becky) Page Tapley

buried at Powell's Chapel Church
Johnson County, Georgia

Lived their entire lives in Johnson County, right down the road from the church.

Tabitha was my father's aunt, the sister of his father, Lusion Keman Tapley.  They called her "Aunt Bish' or 'Bosh' - I have no idea how it would be spelled.  I'm not sure that Tabitha was even pronounced back then as it is today.
