        I don't believe that is correct. This is what the dictionary of genealogy says:

        Consort
        Consort applies to the spouse who died first, and is generally used to refer to the wife. When called "the consort of John Smith," it means that Mrs. Smith died first and that Mr. Smith then became a widower -- the Relict.

        The word consort is the opposite of the word relict in the sense that a marriage is a consortium of husband and wife, hence each is a consort only while the union survives. The survivor of the marriage becomes the relict of that union.

            Consort today to some has a different meaning than in the Victorian Age and earlier when it referred to a wife. Both Queen Victoria's husband Prince Albert and Queen Elizibeth's husbanc Prince Phillip are referred to as Prince Consort to the Queen.

              I have a couple of confusing items here.

              On his gravestone at Blue Springs cemetery, Edward H Dillard's
              inscription reads: "E.H., CONSORT OF ANN DILLARD,
              AGED 32 YEARS 1 MOS 13 DAYS"

              Anybody know what this is all about? "Ann Dillard" is Sarah Ann
              Larkin Dillard, eldest daughter of David Larkin of Larkinsville, and her
              stone is right next to his. They had five daughters. The HUNSTVILLE
              ADVOCATE, reporting on David Larkin's death, notes that "Mr E.H. DILLARD,
              his son-in-law, died at about the same time..." (In fact, he died the
              day before.)

              So what's up with this "consort" business? Anyone know?

              Secondly, can anyone identify "F.O. HURT" who is also buried at
              Blue Springs? His dates are 5-21-1855 to 10-17-1928. He married
              "Mamie Larkin" (5-21-1865 to 7-9-1908) and I don't have her in any
              of my Larkin families. So, does anyone know who these folks are?

              Look for some Larkin related photos and other goodies to be uploaded
              to the site soon.

              Glory to God,

                When we lived in Frankfort, Ky. There was this huge cemetery that I loved to
                visit. There were many war graves there as well as many children that died
                of some kind of epidemic . There was also buckeye trees. What I found most
                odd was a man being buried and having his consort (wife) on one side and his
                concubine (mistress) on the other side of him.

                        That is a fine explanation as well and educating, when I was in Japan I went to a museum I was visiting and they described a replica of a lady and it was life size as a consort to a ruler.This was in the 1600 period. I believe it was italy also where they described a consort as a concubine as well. My one trip to England was just 3 days long and I was briefing our military counter parts in some new hardware but was treated very well I remember. They would not allow me to pay for anything. I also know there military was not paid as well as ours which was not a lot and that was very genereous of them.

                          I have a couple of confusing items here.

                          On his gravestone at Blue Springs cemetery, Edward H Dillard's
                          inscription reads: "E.H., CONSORT OF ANN DILLARD,
                          AGED 32 YEARS 1 MOS 13 DAYS"

                          Anybody know what this is all about? "Ann Dillard" is Sarah Ann
                          Larkin Dillard, eldest daughter of David Larkin of Larkinsville, and her
                          stone is right next to his. They had five daughters. The HUNSTVILLE
                          ADVOCATE, reporting on David Larkin's death, notes that "Mr E.H. DILLARD,
                          his son-in-law, died at about the same time..." (In fact, he died the
                          day before.)

                          So what's up with this "consort" business? Anyone know?

                          Secondly, can anyone identify "F.O. HURT" who is also buried at
                          Blue Springs? His dates are 5-21-1855 to 10-17-1928. He married
                          "Mamie Larkin" (5-21-1865 to 7-9-1908) and I don't have her in any
                          of my Larkin families. So, does anyone know who these folks are?

                          Look for some Larkin related photos and other goodies to be uploaded
                          to the site soon.

                              Regina,
                              There is a large cemetery in Macon. Most of the graves are very old. The husband's grave was in the middle (some of the largest and most elaborate monuments I have seen) and the consort on one side, with the mistress on the other side. I was shocked, couldn't believe my eyes. Was this normal for plantation owners? I also wondered if the mistress was a slave? As large as the monuments were, some one had money, I suppose.

                              Sorry if I got off the subject of Jackson County.

                              Elaine Tinsley

                              When we lived in Frankfort, Ky. There was this huge cemetery that I loved to
                              visit. There were many war graves there as well as many children that died
                              of some kind of epidemic . There was also buckeye trees. What I found most
                              odd was a man being buried and having his consort (wife) on one side and his
                              concubine (mistress) on the other side of him.

                              David   From the census it would seen that this is Mary H. Larkin and Frederick Obediah Hurt, they married after the 1900 Census. Mary H. Larkin is listed

                                From the census it would seen that this is Mary H. Larkin and Frederick Obediah Hurt, they married after the 1900 Census. Mary H. Larkin is listed with her younger brother William R. Larkin and her mother Francis E.. Fredrerick O. is listed with his brother William. Both listed as Single on the 1900, Frederick is listed as Wd on the 1910 and 1920. Both Mary and Obediah are listed on the 1880 census with their parents. Mary with her parents on the 1870 listed as Larkins and Obediah Hurt in 1870 living in the household of John W. and Mary Ellis, he is listed as 16 Clerk in Store b. TN.
                                 
                                Someone would have to lookup their marriage at the courthouse as the marriage index only goes to 1900/1901.
                                 
                                Can't say this is right until you see the marriage certificate.

                                Do you know whether her given name was Mary?

                                I have a couple of confusing items here.

                                On his gravestone at Blue Springs cemetery, Edward H Dillard's
                                inscription reads: "E.H., CONSORT OF ANN DILLARD,
                                AGED 32 YEARS 1 MOS 13 DAYS"

                                Anybody know what this is all about? "Ann Dillard" is Sarah Ann
                                Larkin Dillard, eldest daughter of David Larkin of Larkinsville, and her
                                stone is right next to his. They had five daughters. The HUNSTVILLE
                                ADVOCATE, reporting on David Larkin's death, notes that "Mr E.H. DILLARD,
                                his son-in-law, died at about the same time..." (In fact, he died the
                                day before.)

                                So what's up with this "consort" business? Anyone know?

                                Secondly, can anyone identify "F.O. HURT" who is also buried at
                                Blue Springs? His dates are 5-21-1855 to 10-17-1928. He married
                                "Mamie Larkin" (5-21-1865 to 7-9-1908) and I don't have her in any
                                of my Larkin families. So, does anyone know who these folks are?

                                Look for some Larkin related photos and other goodies to be uploaded
                                to the site soon.

                                    To give you all an idea of the war's impact on 'Old Jackson'. In 1860, WRL's
                                    property was valued at over $60,000. By 1870 it was $1,500 real and $6,000
                                    personal, most of that probably mercantile goods. Cotton and slaves all gone.
