T.C. Paty born Aug 15, 1884 died Aug 25, 1905 Gone but not forgotten

Martha Jane "Mattie" Huffman Paty, daughter of George Cortner Huffman and Eliza Jane Phillips born 06 Jul 1863 Bedford County – 19 Dec 1942 Rutherford County.  3rd wife of James Hopson Paty, married 20 Dec 1900 Bedford County. 

Mattie’s last will and testament specifically says she is to be buried next to her son.  Thomas Cleveland "Cleveland" was not her son but her step-son.  According to 1910 census Mattie had 2 children but only 1 living.  The son that lived left home at a very young age and never returned.  Frank was a professional photographer and lived all over the world eventually passing away, in the 1960’s, in NYC.  We found no gravestone other than Cleveland with the name Paty on it.  Dad and I specifically asked our host, whose family had donated the land for the original cemetery, about cemetery books and records.  He explained that his mother in the middle 1940’s starting keeping cemetery records but there were none for the year 1942 or before…..so we cannot identify any unmarked graves nor account for the empty spaces on each side of Mattie and Cleveland’s plots.  Dad and I both feel that a baby son was interred and Mattie is next to him.  There are lots of stories about Mattie………she had a club foot and was a mean ole soul.  She married late in life and that didn’t exactly take the meanness out of her.  Frank, her only living child, actually stood in the driveway and threw stones at her.  My father’s sister, still living, had several encounters with her during a summer in the early 1930’s and doesn’t have exactly pleasant child hood memories.  My grandfather called his step-mother "Ole Miz Paty".  When my aunt was confronted and asked by Mattie, "Do you know who I am?" my aunt simply repeated what she had heard her father say so often.  My aunt replied, "Yes, maam, you’re Ole Miz Paty".  The fur hit the fan!!

Tennie Elrod Couch – there is controversy over exactly what her name was.  I believe it was either Cynthia or Zilphia Tennie Elrod.  She was the daughter of J. C. Elrod and Nancy Brown Bayless.
