City May Move Historic Headstone to Protect It Bartow officials concerned about encroaching tree. By SUZIE SCHOTTELKOTTE
The Ledger


BARTOW -- When members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy were honoring Confederate Memorial Day in Bartow's historic Oak Hill Cemetery last month, they noticed a crape myrtle tree encroaching on the grave of Robert Latta Law, the youngest son of Confederate Maj. Gen. E.M. Law.


"Our main concern was that the tree might break the tombstone, and we wanted to preserve the tombstone," said Judi Moots, president of the Bartow chapter. "It's a soft marble and subject to erosion. Those Victorian tombstones have to be handled with care."


The group asked the city, which owns the cemetery, if the tree or a portion of it could be taken down, but city officials think they've found a better solution.


"We can move the monument over about a foot, and leave the tree there," Cemetery Superintendent Mike Prince told the city's cemetery committee this week. "That crape myrtle is probably historic itself, and I'd hate to cut it down."


The crape myrtle may be as old as the grave, he said. Law's 20year-old son died Aug. 18, 1898.


Prince said the headstone and coping, which is the concrete border outlining the grave site, could be nudged about a foot and still be on the burial site.


"They made grave sites about 12 feet by 5 feet back then, so it'll still be on his grave," he said. "And I can tell you that crape myrtle roots go deep, and if we start pulling on that crape myrtle, we are going to be pulling on the grave itself."


Moots said she'd go along with the committee's resolution.


"We're primarily interested in preserving the headstone, and this will accomplish that goal," she said. The committee, led by Mayor Pat Huff, agreed with the plan as well, but was reluctant to proceed without contacting someone from the Law family.


"I think the last burial in that plot was in 1941," Huff said. "It might be hard finding a descendant, but I think we need to try."


That 1941 burial appears to be the grave of Law's grandson, E. McIvor Law III, who was born in 1897. A simple, ground-level stone marks his grave.


Despite the passage of time, the general's descendants haven't abandoned the grave site. Last month, J. Cecil Ramsey of Jacksonville traveled to Bartow to visit the burial site. His great-grandmother, Charity Matilda Law Ramsey, was the general's first cousin, he said.


"I thought he was buried in Alabama and had gone there looking for his grave site," said Ramsey, 77. "Then I was talking to a cousin recently who said he was buried in Bartow."


The two men traveled to Bartow last month and found Law's grave.


"It was very exciting to be there and find his grave," said Ramsey, a retired captain from the Duval County Sheriff's Office. "He was at almost all the major engagements during the Civil War, and I'm proud to be a descendant of his, even if it is a little distant."


Law, a South Carolina native and an 1856 graduate of the South Carolina Military Academy, now the Citadel, led troops into battle in several major Civil War campaigns, including Gettysburg, Ramsey said. When Gen. John Bell Hood was wounded, Law commanded Confederate troops at Little Round Top on the second day of the Gettysburg battle.


Law, a former teacher who was wounded several times during the Civil War, came to Polk County in 1895 to start the South Florida Military Institute, according to Polk County historian Lloyd Harris. South Carolina friends who had moved here encouraged him to come to Bartow. The school he founded eventually was consolidated with other colleges to become the University of Florida. He died in 1920.


Ramsey said the Law family holds an annual reunion in Georgia each July, and he's not aware of any direct descendants of the general.


"They've all passed on," he said. "I've been doing the family genealogy for years, and I don't know of any direct descendants."


Ramsey said he wouldn't object to moving the son's headstone a little to the north to preserve the crape myrtle.
