January 21, 1982: Scant Information on Georgia Death

I put out a call for information on the following abortion death:

Mary Tennyson, age 20, Black, Richmond County, Georgia; January 21, 1982

My research arm, Keely, found some additional information -- she was born on October 15, 1961. Her death certificate number is 005646. She is buried next to a baby's gravestone with no name on it. This enabled me to look up genealogy records and find that she lived in Roberta, Georgia.

This gave me a lead to her obituary, which indicated that she died in a hospital in Augusta, Georgia and was a graduate of Crawford County High School and had attended Macon Vocational Technical School. 

How Mary came to her death remains unknown to me.
