Mallory Family in Brad Cemetery

Family Monument
Brad Cemetery

This beautiful grey granite monument is found with several other Mallory tombstones located in the southeast corner of the cemetery. I failed to photograph the other side, and now I do not know if there was anything carved there or not. I will go back and add that information here if there is.

Jerry Lee Clepper
Aug. 5, 1942 - June 3, 2003
Betty Jean (Ranspot)
Mar. 27, 1944 - Jan. 4, 2008

This  monument to Jerry and Betty Jean Clepper is found on the southeast side of the cemetery. The Mallory grouping is seen in the distance behind the Clepper stone.

I regret not taking individual photos of the Mallory family tombstones, so I plan to stop there again on my way to Possum Kingdom the next time. I have a friend who has just discovered the Mallorys are her family. And I would like to provide her and other members of her family a visual of the resting place of their ancestors. 

(If you click on the photograph you may be able to make out the individual names on some. Other posts about Brad Cemetery can be found here and this blog's banner is a view of the cemetery.)

    My grandmother was Lou Fitzgerald Mallory, wife of Omer Lee Mallory and my father was Bobby Lee Mallory. My mother was Mary Margaret Mallory. My daughter discovered this web site and was thrilled at the beautiful pictures of my parents and her grandparents and all the Mallory monuments. There are lots more of our family with older headstones on the other side of the cemetery opposite the ones you have pictured. The Mallory family has been in Brad for many years and is an awesome and amazing family!

  4. Melodee, thanks so much for writing. I met Shanda Livingston who also commented about her Mallory family here and on Facebook. We had the pleasure of meeting at my home several weeks later. She told me a lot about the Mallorys and showed me an actual schematic of the cemetery plots. It showed where the other members of your family are buried. It was fantastic. I am going to try to get there again one day when it is cooler. I am so glad you like my blog and the pictures. I tried to honor those whom the tombstones represent.
