RE: Gist
Thank you for your response. Martin Gist is my G.G. Grandfather. I have learned that he was killed during the Civil War at Carthage, Missouri. He being killed in a mining accident is new to me. Since there is no record of death or burial known, both are possible. There are Gist's buried at the Peace Church Cemetery along with Martin's wife Malinda. Their stones are quite large and still legible. The cemetery is in very bad shape and it is possible Martin could be buried there, his stone missing, stolen or deteriorated. Being killed in a mining accident could result in a body being left in place or not access able. It would seem if other Gist's are buried at P.C. Cem., Martin would have a stone like the others. Being killed in a battle of war, many were buried in a mass grave or were just lost or destroyed so he would not be at P.C. Cem. A death certificate should be available if he were killed in a mining accident. I have not researched for a certificate of death. I would like to do an extensive repair at Peace Church Cemetery sometime soon. If you would be interested, please let me know. Someone ''burns it off'' usually every spring and this results in causing stones to crack and blacken. The Cemetery could be ''Hydro-Seeded'' for about $1000 per acre. I have acquaintances who could accomplish the seeding. Thanks again. Steve
