The text of his obelisk reads: O ye, whose check the tears of pity stains. Draw near in pious revírence and attend. Here lie the loving husbandís dear remains. The tender father and the genírous friend. The pitying heart that felt for human wo. The dauntless heart that feared no human pride. The friend of man to vice alone a foe. For evín his failing leaned to virtue side.
And, lo I am with you always even unto the end of the world.
Amen. Matthew XXVIII.20
Next to him is his second wife Martha E. Gee, born January 16, 1804, died October 28, 1882.
2. Their son, James Gee, born 1829, died 1862, is the James buried nearest the gate. The family believes that James' wife,
Lucy Jones Wyatt, born 1833, died 1884, is buried to his right in an unmarked grave. All of the Gregory children, with marked graves, buried
in the row with this James are his grandchildren.
4. Their son, David Gee, born 1836, died 1864, is most likely in the brick covered grave next to Samuel. He was a Confederate soldier and died of disease during the war. The Sons of Confederate Veterans have ordered a monument for him.
5. Richard Call Gee, born 1841, died 1865, is believed to be in the brick covered grave next to David. He was also a soldier in the Civil War and died of disease. The Sons of Confederate Veterans have ordered a monument for him.
6. Agnes Gee, the only daughter, born October 10, 1826, died January 12, 1900, is buried at Martha's feet.
7. Their son, Charles Alston Gee, born Nov. 20 1833, died April 24, 1867 after the war and is buried in an unmarked grave, but it is known that he is buried in this cemetery. He was a Confederate veteran
8. Henry's only child born to his first wife, Agnes Forrester Gee, was John Henry Gee, born circa 1819, who died in 1876 in a Quincy fire. He is buried in an unmarked grave, but it is known that he is buried in this cemetery. He was a Confederate veteran.
Logically Charles Alston and John Henry should be in the row with David and Richard Call in the order they died.
Both wives of Henry, Agnes and Martha, were sisters. Their other sister Jane, lived with Henry's family, and she is buried here. Agnes died in South Carolina and is buried there.
Henry Gee's brother, James, is buried at the foot of Henry's grave. This grave is covered with brick and has no headstone.
Family history says that Henry's devoted manservant was buried next to him, and that could be he in the bricked grave beside Henry.
