Information taken from the March 1, 1982 reading by Jim and Maydell Talley and the October 6, 1998 reading from north to south by Charles Steger, Melba Tims, Connie Draper and Irene Powell.

“The two Wrights and the three Branch babies are covered with thin boxes made of concrete with the inscriptions very crudely made. The weather over the years has almost wiped the writing out and the concrete is badly broken from age. In a few years, the lettering will be completely unreadable.” –Noted Jim and Maydell Talley March 1, 1981
