Francis Loraine Mullins Tombstone

This is the tombstone of young Francis Loraine Mullins who was buried in Santa Fe Cemetery in Maury Co., Tennessee. I don’t know anything about her, but this tombstone was in the same location as those of the other Mullins in the family; so it is probable that she was related to the Robert G. Mullins family.
