Re: Aquilla Hill Cemetery : Dyess & Carter

This from an old book on Webster Co GA:

"Aquilla Hill Cemetery

Leave Preston and go south on Georgia highway 41. Go about two miles to the first paved crossroads and turn right on unmarked paved country road. Go about three miles on this road and the Chester Nowell home will be on the left of the road. The cemetery is on the right of the road about 400 yards away. The cemetery cannot be seen from the road and you will have to ewalk across the field and into the woods to find it.
Dyess, Aquilla D before 185- (wife and children)

-- other graves listed are those of Henry James Askew & William Thomas Askew, sons of Henry J & Mary E Dykes Askew. 3 Gross persons, 2 Cain, & several unmarked graves. It's possible that some Carters are there in unmarked graves (or missing headstones?) as Henry J & Mary Dykes Askew had a daughter whose first marriage was to Josiah Winfield Carter, s/o Josiah H & Violator B Dyess Carter.
