Note from Kay Koonce March 18, 2006: Willie Hollis from Birmingham that has a trailer there in Sulligent and his nephew Ronnie Hollis took me to this cemetery yesterday. There is a sign for it further down Dempsey Road from where we went in. We took Mulberry to Dempsey Road three or four miles to a log road and went in for quite a distance. I think probably the reason her gravesite is here and Brunce is in the Hubert Hollis Cemetery is that the Hubert Hollis Cemetery was not established at the time she died. The Brunson that she was married was the son of Berryman/Berriman & Louisa Holliday Hollis. Not my direct line Brunson Hollis.
