Remembrance card listed in sources gives death date.

The only Fitzgerald I have found in very close proximity in Tennessee is her father, Samuel Fitzgerald. He was pastor of the Goodfield Upper Baptist Church about four miles south of Decatur. He helped build or lay out a new road with Solomon Wood as noted in the County Court Minute Book 1 of the town of Decatur. Her first son was named Samuel W. Wood.

Samuel L. Fitzgerald is in the Meigs County Probate of Deeds or other land book on pages 41, 42, 100 and 121. In the same county are Jonathan, Nancy A., Samuel O., George W., Harrison, John and Samuel Wood or Woods.

Following information from Tangled Mess of Fitzgeralds GA>TN>MO>TX on the internet by Leah Savage:

"Rebeca Fitzgerald b. 1812 GA m. Charles O'Kelley c. 1833 in TN. Later moved to Barry Co, MO.

Emilin F. Gerald b. 21821 GA m. 14 Nov 1839 in Meigs Co. TN to Francis Dedrick O'Kelley. Later moved to Wood Co, TX

Ambrose Fitzgerald b. 12 Mar 1827 Meigs Co, TN m. Mary Ann O'Kelley 4 Jan 1846. Later moved to Wood Co. TX.

I found information that Ambrose's parents were Samuel and Nicy (Nancy?). I find a Samuel and Nancy in Hamilton Co. TN in the 1850 census."

My aunt Aileen said that Anna was buried in Jasper County in the Fasken Cemetery because the water was so high at the time of her death that she couldn't be buried in the Macedonia Cemetery so they took her to the cemetery in Jasper County.

On the death certificate for Tipton O. Wood, their grandson, Owen A. Wood, says Anna was named FitsJerrel and born in Alabama.
