2/7/13 NOTE: Asa and Mariah are buried in the Carlin Cemetery on the top of the hill overlooking the land that was once their farm in the New Site community of Barry County. They are the only graves there. A few years ago a descendant, N. Thompson, thought it would be a good idea to create a memorial for them at the Purdy Cemetery (at Purdy, Missouri), where people would be more likely to see it. So she put up a nice engraved stone in that cemetery that tells about them.
Unfortunately, there are few houses close to the Carlin Cemetery. The marvelous old, thin, elaborate stones that were on the graves of Asa and Maria were destroyed by vandals in recent years, so money was taken from the Carlin Reunion funds and used to buy a flat grave stone that wouldn't be so tempting to vandals. We had the flat memorial stone engraved with their names and birth dates and death dates and had it placed on their gravesites on their farm. We also paid to have a fence built around the site and to have brush removed from the cemetery. Kirk Carlin (a descendant who lived nearby) and his son maintained the Carlin Cemetery exceptionally well for several years. Kirk died a couple of years ago.
A lady historian who was collecting info on cemeteries in Barry County a few years ago mistakenly called Asa and Mariah's cemetery the Jolly Cemetery instead of the Carlin Cemetery. She published the wrong info in her cemetery book. The Jolly Cemetery is located next to a church in the town of Jollification "Jolly" which is a few miles away.
