|Capt. J. Harvey Mathes|
J.Harvey Mathes died in California in 1902. When his body was returned to Memphis he was originally interred at Elmwood Cemetery in plot 377 1/2, space 3, of the Turley section. However, he was moved to Forest Hill February 16, 1918 to reside next to his loved ones. "Love leans on memory, until the touch of God makes it immortal" says the Mathes family monument. Perhaps it will be the Memphis City Council that helps lend that touch of immortality to his name as well.
