Janelle
Thanks for the information. These brick walls are tough.

I found the following transcription, don't know if it will help. They have indicated that Wesley, Bradford, Presley, and Clay were separate individuals.

Anyway, It's good to find another Word researcher, Let's keep in touch. I'll send you anything I find that looks relevant.

PRESTON CEMETERY, MARSHALL COUNTY, ALABAMA

TRANSCRIBED BY JANE AND RANDY NICHOLS MAY 28, 1999.

THIS CEMETERY IS LOCATED OFF HWY. 79 COMING FROM SCOTTSBORO, GOING TOWARD
GUNTERSVILLE. AFTER YOU CROSS THE JACKSON COUNTY, AL LINE YOU TURN RIGHT ON
PRESTON CEMETERY ROAD JUST BEFORE YOU GET TO THE FIRST BODY OF WATER ON A DIRT
ROAD. THE CEMETERY IS DOWN THE DIRT ROAD JUST A LITTLE WAYS UP ON A HILL. THERE
IS A DIRT DRIVE TO THE RIGHT THAT MAKES A CIRCLE AROUND THE CEMETERY ON A HILL.
YOU CANNOT SEE THE CEMETERY UNTIL YOU START UP THE CIRCLE. THE CEMETERY IS A
LITTLE GROWN UP RIGHT NOW, BUT HAS SOME OF THE GRAVES CLEANED OFF. THERE ARE
ALOT OF UNMARKED GRAVES AND ALOT MARKED WITH FIELDSTONES WITH NO WRITING.
