Charles Black Smith and first wife Lucinda Campbell, and second wife Catherine Jones are buried in the cemetery behind the old church up on top of the high hill facing Hwy. 32. His father William D. Smith moved to the area with Charles in 1851. Can anyone tell me where William D. Smith is buried? Charles was the best know educator in the area in the 1850's.
Also in Mound Cemetery in Piketown, right in front of the biggest mound, close to the fence and the road, there is a spire type monument, about 3 feet tall. On one side is Elizabeth Stedman, and all info is very legible. On the other side is Enoch Stedman, and for some reason it is extremely weathered and illegible. I live 700 miles from there and the only day I had to check it out about three years ago it was raining and I had no rubbing equipment. I sure would appreciate anyone in the Piketon area trying to rub the info on Enoch with paper and carbon or pencil, and posting it here, or send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much.
