    So that’s my spill & here’s my 2 cents : )

    Granny Dollar is buried in Little River Cemetery in Mentone, AL. Her tombstone was purchased using donations from local citizens lead by Mrs. Annie Young, who designed the marker. Dobson Mermorials furnished the inscription & erected the marker for no charge in December 1973. Buster, Granny’s faithful dog, is not buried beside her. Buster rests at the base of a large boulder at Alpine School (now Alpine Camp for Boys) near DeSoto State Park.
