Long Description:
A dove of peace with an olive branch adorns the grave marker of Mary H. Bailey in Longs Bend Cemetery, Longs Bend, Hawkins County, Tennessee.

Her grave marker is made of white marble and has a dove of peace with a small olive branch that adorns the top.

This marker from circa 1864 depicts the peace dove flying with it's head held upright and an olive branch in it's beak. There is a large lichen growing over the olive branch.

Also note the Adam's needle, or Yucca filamentosa growing next to her grave marker, a common cemetery plant found in old burial grounds in the region.

I found a memorial for her on findagrave:
