Notes
from Cuz Glenn Perry
Re: Mary Elizabeth "Pop"(Taylor) Woolum
(some, by mistake, say it's "Polly" Taylor)
There has been a lot of confusion about her nickname,
but I grew up one mile from the Woolum place at
Tedders, Big Richland, KY and talked about her with
the older people all my life, and I see one of her
great-grandsons every time I visit Barbourville today.
The nickname was "POP."
For some reason around there
"Pop" was a regular nickname for "Mary."

It is true that she was buried at the Black Cemetery
at Callahan (further down Big Richland Creek,
closer to Barbourville), as she was then staying
with her daughter, Lucy (Woollum) Parrott
(the Parrott family came from the Callahan area,
although in later years they too lived at Tedders).

(Headstone photo provided by Danny Cobb)
The intention was to move Aunt Pop back to
the Woolum homeplace at Tedders
,
Big Richland, Knox County
- to be laid to rest alongside her husband -
when weather permitted the following spring,
but that never was done.
However,
Uncle Sam Woolum is buried alone at
the Woolum homeplace at Tedders

(later the home of his daughter, Lucy Parrott, and then,
until the late 1960s, of Lucy' son, Wm. McKinley Parrott).
A lot of people are mistaken about Sam's place of burial,
but his great-grandson, Charles Parrott, tells me that
he used to take care of Sam's grave.
