More > the cemetery with her family, in the heat of an Alabama summer day, when only four years old. There were six souls sleeping there, including the child Tommy, and she wondered about an empty grave that just might hold the remains of her long searched for great-great-grandfather. And where was James Polk buried? “That night I dreamed of little Tommie who lay in the graveyard.
