Thank you for replying, Betty. I have been to the cemetery and to the Find-a-Grave site, without success, so I don't think they are marked. I am looking for Michael King, his son Charles Henry King, and Charles' wife Mary Robinson King. I believe two graves marked by fieldstones in the Fairview Cemetery may be Charles and Mary (who died within months of each other in 1881) because they are next to the marked grave of Charles' sister Martha (King) Elliott, who died in 1882 (which I did locate on Find-a-Grave before physically finding it in the cemetery). So unless while you're there you can run down who may be keeping the cemetery records of who is buried in unmarked graves, I'm not sure what else I could have you do for me.

Garners emigrated with our Kings from Wake Co., NC to IN to MO, with several marriages, as I recall (although not in my direct line). And one of Charles and Mary's orphans (they left five young children) was fostered by a family named Garner, which family stories say was a minister, who moved to Craigshead Co, AR. I'd like to know more about your Garners when you have the time, particularly the one buried in Fairview. You can email me direct at

Happy hunting!
