Record of death not found

From cemetery records:
~ Vest, Jefferson
~ Born: Date and place unknown
~ Died: Date and place unknown
~ Burial: Date unknown
(Note: Death was probably prior to the fire in the sexton's cottage in 1889; all original cemetery records were destroyed in the fire)

Squared-top tablet gravestone found during 1986 inscription survey of cemetery but only name was legible. By the time of the photographic survey in 2011, the tablet was completely illegible. Identified by location and by a poor quality old photocopy of the gravestone (name but no dates legible) found in the cemetery files.

In photograph of two markers, Jefferson Vest's gravestone is on the right and Emaline Vest's gravestone is on the left. In the second photograph, Jefferson and Emaline's gravestones are in the forefront and Annah Vest Stephens' gravestone is in the background. The relationship of Emaline, Jefferson and Annah is unknown at this time.
