Laura Ellen Porter Covington - Friendship Cemetery, Attala County

Just last week, Duncan C. Covington provided me with a listing of graves located in Fellowship Cemetery and photographs of some of those graves. Posted here today are photographs of grave markers belonging to Henry W. Covington's first wife, Laura Ellen Porter, and their daughter, Ellen, who died shortly after her birth. Laura Ellen Porter, daughter of Samuel Porter and Mary Middleton Porter, my paternal great-great-grandparents, was only 24 years old when she died. Some of the markers in this old cemetery are cracked or unreadable, and newer grave stones have been added.
