President and Host of the Gallup Family Association
Nathan Williams PEARSON was born 26 Nov 1911 and died 11 Jun 2002 was married to Kathleen Patricia McMURTY who was born 10 Feb 1917 and died 14 Mar 2012 were married 9 April 1947. He was the President of the Gallup Family Association and hosted, at the house next to this cemetery, the annual reunion.
As you can see there is a beautiful granite monument in the cemetery dedicated to him. Their individual gravestones are here and match each other and are simple in design and fit in with the style of this cemetery. They rest together at the end of Row 6 in a shady spot.
I have been to two family reunions at this location and I have walked through this cemetery many times. At the beginning of this project, I emphasized that this is a cemetery on private land. It is well maintained by the Gallup Family Association.
