She Loathed Being Wet

We found another graveshelter in Sevier County, Tennessee — in Pollard Cemetery, established from land Dr. Feuquay Pollard donated from his farm to serve the purpose.


“Doctor Feuquay Pollard had this little house built to cover his wife’s grave because she (Elizabeth. A. Cate) loathed being wet. Doctor kept her grave covered and dry until this house could be built.”

Inside:

Doctor F. Pollard, born February 9, 1826 — died June 12, 1897
Elizabeth A. Pollard, born January 26, 1835 — died July 14, 1892
