 When the Faircloths' all died this land was a part of Lawrence County Alabama. From my Graveyard analysis it appears this was one family with Cordilo being the male progenitor & M.C. being the lady. The children all seem to be from Cordilo & M. C. Faircloth, but one child is from Cordilo and S. (C. & S.) suggesting there was an earlier wife of Cordilo Faircloth. You get the task of proving all this with these hints as I am unrelated and will not pursue this. [C.W. Austin.]


Sources: No known prior publication existed of this cemetery, except it may be in the three volume set of books "Old Times in Colbert, Franklin & Lawrence County Alabama" Added here initially by C. Wayne Austin 27 Dec 2012, based on photos dated 22 Dec 2012, about 4:00 pm. This cemetery was listed on Findagrave.com with confusion from all the broken stones. I was able to put a couple of them back together a little better than the last visitor. They had 8 listings with all shown basically as unknown fragments whereas we identified those as six monuments including only one unknown Faircloth daughter as shown above. With a little luck from a sharp probe the top of this stone might be located. One of the parts of one stone is stacked against a tree over on the northwest corner of the old rotting barn and needs to be brought back to the cemetery.
