Bonny Kate

Died in Russellville, Ala.October 7, 1836

(south side)
Katherine Sherrill Sevier, Bonny Kate, came when a girl with her parents, to Tennessee from North Carolina; married John Sevier August 14, 1780 when she was 26 years old; became the mother of eight children and died October 7, 1836 at the age of 82 years.
Her nearest descendants authorized S.G. Heiskell, of Knoxville, Historian, to move her remains from Russellville, Alabama, and the County Court of Knox County by resolution passed July 3, 1922, authorized Mr. Heiskell to inter the remains in this grave and to erect this monument.
An audience of several thousand witnessed the exercises at the reinterment on July 27, 1922.
Her fame has flourished as the brightest star among the pioneer women of this state until her immortality in history is as secure as that of her heroic husband by whose side she at last sleeps her last sleep. Great husband and great wife, John and Kate Sevier made their stately progress across the pages of early Tennessee, and now reunited. "After life's fitful fever they sleep well."
