SUDDRETH (also called SETZER) CEMETERY
The below information comes from Larry Klutz.
The first burial in this cemetery was my uncle, Dollen
Earl Setzer who died at birth in 1907. His twin sister,
Gladys Vondola lived to marry Ernest Hicks and raise ten
children. She died in Ohio in 1954.
The second burial there was my grandfather's brother-in-law, Kel Suddreth who was killed in 1910 followed shortly after that by my aunt, Jettie Setzer who died in 1911 at one year and one day old.
The cemetery is located on land that my great grandmother, Caroline Puett Setzer had inherited from her mother, Cynthia Puett in 1876 as her share of the remaining estate of Capt. William Puett. The other heirs were Joseph and Elisha Puett and Melita Puett Clark.
Kel Suddreth's widow, Nancy Emma and her children lived nearby, taking care of her parents William Azor and Caroline until they died, Caroline in 1919 and Azor in 1927. She quite properly inherited the place upon her father's death. At that point the Setzer land which had been Puett land became Suddreth land. The last piece of it remaining in family hands (that I know of) is the original home place where Nancy Emma's grand daughter Sharon Suddreth now lives.
Nancy Emma was buried in the cemetery there as were her son, Harl N. and grandson Harl Kelly. Harl Kelly's son Cliff is singularly responsible and should be thanked for bringing this cemetery back from it's near lost and abandoned condition.
Below is an edited cut and paste from the Collettsville
Historical Society web page showing the GPS for the
Suddreth Cemetery where my great grandparents, W A and
Caroline Puett Setzer are buried. I've made a
correction to the info given on the web site with
respect to the names and dates for their three
grandchildren, buried there and marked only by rocks.
