McNiel Cemetery
According to the Ashe County Cemetery Records book, the cemetery has 9 graves (we know of Eli, Fannie, and Rachel). It also lists 2 graves that are a "group of rocks" and 3 "Marker Unreadable." I wasn't successful finding the last one - it is at least a last name that is not a variation of McNeil (I also checked Eller).

Thanks for the information concerning this memorial.

It appears the memorial was created while the person was living. Just because a spouse is deceased, a memorial should not be created for the living.

I deleted mine and notified Find A Grave concerning memorials being created for the living and names created using a Nick name for the first name, causing confusion.

Thanks again

Wanted to let you know that their son and my Great grandfather John Gordon Lyall #93816116 can be found here on Find A Grave, and should be added to the list of G.F. Lyall and Mary B.
