Tombstone Tuesday ~ Mary Kate Frierson Givens
Mary Kate Frierson was born in Tennessee on November 17, 1828. I don't know her parent's names, but believe her father may be Charles Frierson. Mary married Newton Givens on 8/31/1853 in Lafayette County Mississippi. He was the son of Samuel & Cynthia Milligan Givens.
Mary and Newton had two children: Edgar and Samuel. They lived in Lafayette County, Mississippi; Washington County, Arkansas; Ellis County, Texas, and possibly traveled through or resided for a brief time in what is now Howard County, Arkansas as she was buried in Mineral Springs Cemetery.
Newton married Mattie Halloway in 1877 in Nevada County, and when he passed he was buried in Ellis County Texas. He was a Cumberland Presbyterian minister.
