Thank you William Knight for taking pictures of our relative's stones in this cemetery....We have been looking for this cemetery for so long. Carolyn and I put our heads together and did it...So exciting.
I know his tombstone has it spelled HYRAM, but all other records noted his name as "Hiram A. Gayton". Can you please add this info?
The above was sent to me through edit button.
THANK YOU SusanKC for sponsoring this page. Such a nice thing to do. I really appreciate it. You're a doll.
Hiram is the son of Uriah Gaydon.
I found him in the 1870 Lumpkin County census records and he was 25 years old with his wife Elmira and a son James, 5 years old. He worked in the Gold Mines.
He served in the Civil War. He enlisted with his older brother William March 4, 1862 as a private. Captured at Vicksburg, Miss, July 4, 1863. Exchanged October 8, 1863. Roll dated December 31, 1863
He was buried in the Gayton Family Cemetery.
Please leave a flower for my dear Grandmother.
I will return to fill in family names and more dates.
NOTE: This is the same family as my Gaydon Family. Spelling is different in many records.
Elmira Adeline Beck- Gayton Gaydon (1830 - 1920)*
Co. C. 52 Ga. Inf. C.S.A.
