Holly Springing Up Still
David Ledbetter At Jake Garland Home Place
Dave Post-Kin To Mary Post
The holly tree was planted as indicated in honor of two children of Dr. Calvin Post who died at an early age. Both were nemed for his mother, per family legend, so there was some age separation. My family installed a grave marker there a couple of years ago. The plaque at the holly tree was originally affixed to the tree. The tree withered and has essentially died, except for the new growth around the base. This caused the plaque to fall from the tree. We eventually discovered the plaque missing and, through the GSMNP, discovered that a local historian had found the plaque, inquired of its circumstances, and had been given ownership by the GSMNP. I contacted the individual, retrieved the plaque, justified reinstallation in the current manner with the GSMNP and we had another family event to replace the plaque near the holly tree.
