From Icle Smith record: In the year of 1822, September 18th, the family then moved to Long Hollow near Larkinsville, Jackson County, Alabama and this is where my great grandfather died and was buried in the vicinity of Larkinsville. I've seen his grave and it can be seen today in Billy Robinsons yard in the Long Hollow near Larkinsville. His grave is covered with 6, I believe, big limestone rocks, two running lengthwise, three cross and one broad on top. Rocks seem to be 7 or 8 inches thick or more.
