    Notes 
    • Interesting to note is that while the Byrd Wallace cemetery contains a number of graves for Byrd Wallace and his descendants, there is a small tombstone that is much older than the rest. In 1938, Ollie Shields transcribed for the WPA as: Little... Williams b. 1831 and d. 1834. Shields stated at the time that "people living nearby say a little boy had burned to death." Tony Parker transcribed this stone in the mid 1970's as follows: Jeremiah Williams d. 1831 and ---- Williams d. 1834. Tony believed that this tombstone represented the deaths of two children rather than one. It is quite possible that this child/children are children or grandchildren of Jeremiah Williams (ID# 06311).

      Based on the attached photos taken in 2010, it is very difficult to decipher the inscriptions at this date. It appears to say .... Williams son of Jeremiah Williams and ....th Williams. The dates 1831 and January 1834 are clearly visible on the stone. It is quite possible that this child was born in 1831 and died in January 1834. Because of the inability to read much of the middle part of the stone, it is unclear if this stone is for one child or for two.
