All of this is sad to hear, but thanks for the information. If anything can
be done, I'll be glad to help. Accordingto Ms. Thelma, my ggggrandfather
George Lewis Carter (1802-184?) is buried in an unmarked grave in the
Standiford Graveyard. Ms. Thelma would not be pleased !!!
I noted a Squire Dayton aged 55 in the 1880 census of Robertson Co., with
wife Armilda and three children. I don't have them in your family file, but
they must be related. I have been having fun trying to connect my Nicholas
Co. Rankins into the Bracken, Harrison, Robertson, Mason Co.

Mr. Hildreth who had many ancestors buried there kept it mowed until
no longer allowed him to do it. I had ask him several times to find
to mow it and I'd pay the bill. He never found anyone. When I
yesterday I was amazed to see the destruction of this cemetery. It was
grown up in weeds and bushes. Trees had been blown down and left to
Livestock had been in the cemetery and probably less than ten stones are
standing. I finally found the stone for my GG grandfather (William
1794 in Mason Co. and died in 1863). His stone was on the ground and
me the name was up. I did manage to get a few of the stones up and
against some large trees. I plan to go back next month with a weed
some tools and try to set his stone back up. I just thought those of
have ancestors there would like to know about the condition of the
I'm not sure anything can be down to save it.
