  • Newspaper, 26 NOV 1936: "....One of the most recent graves in the Greenwood Cemetery is that of Mrs. Margaret Elizabeth Brown McGlathery, mother of Pattie McGlathery and Mrs. S. L. Brister, Sr. At the time of her death, Mrs. McGlathery was one of Greenwood's oldest and best beloved citizens. She is buried in a beautifully kept plot beside her husband, Samuel James [sic.] McGlathery, a Confederate soldier, and five of their children.

    There are but a few of the Greenwood pioneers whose earthly remains lie at rest in the old cemetery. Back to the early days, before artesian wells were bored, before "the swamp" (as the delta was called by hill people), was drained, and before medical science had developed its skill the death rate in Greenwood was high. There is hardly an old Greenwood family that does not have some family member of its household resting in the Greenwood Cemetery. Much of the drama, comedy and the tragedy lie buried in "God's half acre," unknown or forgotten in the whirl of modern life."
    --from "Greenwood Pioneers Sleep In Spot Sacred To Memory"The Greenwood Commonwealth", 26 NOV 1936, p. 2.
