Here is what I have below. I also have a picture of the marker stones that I took about 20 years ago when my uncle took me back in the woods to see the old cemetery. I will also list the directions to the cemetery (I don't remember if I did that). My uncle has long since passed and my aunt still lives in the house next to the cemetery, however I remember my uncle telling me that the family did not own the land anymore, so I'm not sure the cemetery is still there.
My ggg grandparents are buried there along with a gg uncle. There were only three gravemarkers back when I was a teen (some 20 years ago), but there were two unmarked graves if I recall. My uncle did not know who they were, but just said it must be family.
So here is what I've got. All dates are from the old family bible:
John Austin Pattishall
December 12, 1826
May 8, 1896
March 4, 1802
January 15, 1870
Celia A. Williams, wife of Pleasant Pattishall
April 4, 1803
December 5, 1868
Cemetery Directions: US #1 N., take the Colon Road exit and turn left onto Colon Road (SR# 1415). Travel approximately .2 mile and park in the drive of Hobart and Ruby Wicker (my aunt and uncle). Graveyard is located in the pasture to the right. All the graves are marked with fieldstones and do not have inscriptions, but the appropriate information was supplied by Mr. Hobart Wicker (taken from Buffalo Creek Cronicles, Volume I, by Kathy Brooks Jones).
Now, since my mom is a Burns I'm interested in your tree. I have a uncle named John Burns in Sanford, NC. My mother is the daughter of Robert Lee Burns and Ollie MacGregor Jackson. Do the names ring any bells? Let me know and feel free to e-mail me directly at email@example.com.
Thank you for sharing and caring - A Florida Gen Nut.
