There is no headstone for Edna-only a large boulder with the initials "E. M. S. 1905-1908 " chiseled into the rock. [Carolyn Magruder, Email 12 Sep 2011]

Marriage
1900 US Census Civil District 4, Cheatham, Tennessee Henry Stery, Head, 33, [born] Feb 1867, Tennessee, [married] 6 yrs, Farmer, [father born] Tennessee, [mother born] Tennessee Mary A Stery, Wife, 26, [born] Feb 1874, Tennessee [married] 6 yrs, [father born] Tennessee, [mother born] Tennessee, 3 children, 3 living Alvin T Stery, Son, 4, [born] Oct 1896, Tennessee, [father born] Tennessee, [mother born] Tennessee Edher H Stery, Son, 3, [born] Mar 1897, Tennessee, [father born] Tennessee, [mother born] Tennessee Marthie E Stery, Dau, 11/12, [born] Jun 1899, Tennessee, [father born] Tennessee, [mother born] Tennessee 1910 US Census Civil District 14, Cheatham County (1493/4A) Henery K Sterry, Head, 43, born Tennessee, Father born New York, Mother born Tennessee, married 15 yrs, Farmer Mary Ann Sterry, Wife, 36, born Tennessee, Father born Tennessee, Mother born Tennessee, married 15 yrs, 5 children 4 living Alvin Sterry, Son, 14, born Tennessee, Father born Tennessee, Mother born Tennessee Edgar H Sterry, Son, 13, born Tennessee, Father born Tennessee, Mother born Tennessee Martha E Sterry, Daur, 10, born Tennessee, Father born Tennessee, Mother born Tennessee Annie Lois, Daur, 7, born Tennessee, Father born Tennessee, Mother born Tennessee Early on, in our search for Sterry's, we met Miss Rowena Shearon. She knew all about Mary Ann and Henry. She said I reminded her so much of Miss Mary. "She was tall and thin like you." Henry was a tenant farmer. They lived in a house on the Thomasville Rd. at one time. She remembered Henry's funeral. It was held at Mary Ann's parents house - outside. It was hot, and everyone walked across the road to the Cemetery. Mary A. and the children moved in with her sister (Felts) After their mother remarried, we think Edgar Horace moved in with the Harris family and Elizabeth and Lois moved in with Mary Ann's brother Melvin Fox. Alvin left home and joined the Army. Miss Rowena said Henry walked with a cane, and had the "Sterry hair" - white - literally at an early age. Miss Rowena's parents took their children to say "good bye" to Miss Mary just before she died. She had TB but she really died of pneumonia. [Carolyn Magruder, Sep 2011]
