The burial place of Mattie Aldridge Jernigan is not certain. Her husband, J. Martin Jernigan, is buried in the Stone-Baulch Cemetery in Sumner County, Tennessee in 1899 with a double headstone identifying Mattie A. with only a birth year recorded. It is presumed that this inscription was done when J. Martin Jernigan's tombstone was created. The Tennessee death certificate record for Mattie A. Jernigan is in Volume 55, certificate number 65 and lists her death as 2/20/1919 in Sumner County. Her burial location is listed as the Jernigan Cemetery in Sumner County. There is no tombstone for a Mattie A. Jernigan in the Jernigan Cemetery, but there is a tombstone for a Mrs. Mattie Huffines, born 7/9/1854 and died 2/20/1919. However, this Mattie is also listed in this graveyard with a daughter, Elisha Almar Huffines who was born in 1888 when Mattie A. Jernigan had daughter Annie Lee Jernigan. Nonetheless, the coincidence in death date is most interesting."
