    The marble step of the lot (in Patrick Cemetery) shows: 'LIGON-STRAWDER / CULPEPPER" Also in this lot are Willie O. "Patsy" LIGON ("Father") (24 AUG 1912 - 07 AUG 1972) - there is a space for his wife Reba (CULPEPPER) LIGON ("Mother"), but evidently she is not buried there, so I presume still living - and their son, W. Richard LIGON (13 DEC 1944 - 10 MAY 1967) is also buried there.
