ChartsAncestors of William Jerome Pierce
Mary Docia Walling, daughter of Hiram Kilgore Walling and Mahala Howard, was born at McMinnville, Warren Co., Tennessee, 1 July 1836.1,2,3,4 She died at McMinnville, 12 July 1890,1 and was buried at Riverside Cemetery, McMinnville, Warren Co., Tennessee.5

Mary married (1) David Newton Carder, son of David D. Carder and Mary Scott, say 1861;6,7,8 she married (2) Henry Wilkinson Palmer, whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), at McMinnville, 13 October 1870.7

At Riverside Cemetery the stone reads (according to Acklin's Tombstones records: Mary Dozia Walling Parmer, July 1, 1836 - April 17, 1876. Acklin's Bible Records shows a death date of 12 Aug 1890. A Testament dated 1883 shows death as 12 Aug 1889 which I view as most accurate at this time (1994). There is a discrepancy between the Bible record and stone. See Acklin's Tombstones, p143, & Bible Records, p230.
