    I really enjoyed your blog on the Titanic. Linnie Futrelle the mother of Jagques Futrelle is buried in the Popular Springs Methodist Church Cemetery on US Hwy 80 near Adrian,GA. The monument reads: ” LINNIE WIFE OF W.H.H. FUTRELLE AUG. 10, 1845 JULY 28, 1912. JACQUES SON OF W.H.H. & LINNIE FUTRELLE APR. 9, 1875 LOST ON TITANIC APR. 15, 1912. Who in the supreme test, proved himself.” I can send you a picture of the monument .
