  Death Notes:

Died at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte.

  Burial Notes:

Tombstone says "Della E McCain Oct 28 1891 Aug 10 1941".

She is buried at Walkersville instead of Unity because Unity had to use dynamite to dig graves due to rocky soil, and she did not like that. (knowledge of Athae Mae McCain and Shirley Councilman Lindley)
