States: Kentucky: Green
On a farm in Taylor Co., KY (adjoinoing Green Co., and formed formed from Green Co. in 1849), There is a unique gravestone with the following epitaph: "Jesse Puryear 1754-1833 erected by his wife Elizabeth Rice and members of their family". This gravestone was carved in the form of a log of wood, approximately ten feet tall and sixteen inches in diameter(it has fallen and is lying on its side) with the epitaph carved on a stone tablet. No other marked graves are in the vicinity, but many fieldstones are in evidence. Whether thus is the grave of your ancestor is unknown but investigation could be could be worthwhile. Good luck.
