#178 Pitts Cemetery

Posted on

Pitt-Dill Cemetery – NE on Lascassas Pike (Hwy 96E), after road (left) to Oakland High School, cemetery is on right (E) side of road 1/10 mile N of Bushnell Creek Bridge on Hwy 96 about 250 feet from road in a grove of pine trees. 40 or more unmarked graves covered by ivy ground cover.  

This was originally the property of Joseph and Mary Polly Wright Dill who build the cabin circa 1815. They are buried here on a little rise. Their graves were once marked by a log enclosure which has become part of the growth and soil accumulation on their graves. There is a small stone which appears to be the top of an old marker over one of the graves. There are probably other Dill family members buried here.

Joseph Dill 1760 – 1826 Mary Polly Wright Dill Nov 17, 1770 – June 7, 1818  

The Pitts family owned the property in more recent times and the home site has been owned by the George Todd family for 30+ years, 2008.

#147 Martin Cemetery

Posted on

Lascassas Quadrangle 2/3 mile north of Jefferson Pike

East of Valley View Road 1/4 of a mile down a farm access road and in wooded area.

Gwen’s notes: 

This was a large cemetery and was likely the McAdoo/Martin cemetery.   People are buried there before the Civil War and there is a large row of graves which appears to be slaves. At one time the McAdoo’s owned 48 slaves. This is all going to be lost soon. There are hardly any markers left standing. Some of these pictures were made earlier.

Note: These stones appear to have shaving cream on them. Please do not do this.  When we first started doing genealogy, this was the preferred method of photographing stones and many of us did it, but now we know that it can destroy the stone.

Also DON’T write the photographers about this. They let me use the pictures, so be nice to them.
