Above were some of the more prominent fieldstones marking graves. There are many others that may be marking graves. It is appropriate to know that carved tombstones did not make their way into use here much prior to 1820. and then only sparsely for a time. So we have many old pioneers that are interred in places we are not aware of. I know many of my ancestors graves began disappearing about 1850 and others from prior generations have stones back in North Carolina, VA or KY states where their ancestors lived.
