Cemetery Note: "The old tombstones of Elisha & Elizabeth Falwell and their infant child have been moved and new grave markers were placed along with the pieces of the old stones about a mile north to the gravesite of Elisha's first son Moses Fallwell. Reason for the move is the family grave site was in a alfalfa field and turned cow pasture part of the year, also vandals and hunters have desecrated the stones to rubble with cows walking on the graves over the many years. The current owner of the land, Virgil Beasley, told me that one day the graves would be plowed over and become part of the pasture land. Permission was granted by the owner of the property and new markers and pieces of old markers of Elisha, wife and baby. A steel pipe fence was placed around the entire grave site to protect it from the horses trampling. All is welded shut with no gates to be left open but one can climb thru the steel pipes to visit the graves. Large animals have no entry. The steel pipe fence grave site of some of Moses Falwell family with Elisha and wife and baby child is only about 50 yards from a road, well within walking distance if you climb a wire fence." Written by Boyd Eugene Fallwell, November 9, 2000.
Moving of the stones, stone fragments, and some of the dirt from the old graves was accomplished in 1997 Kenneth Lyle Fallwell (1922-1999), a great grandson of Elisha & Elizabeth Fallwell.
