Quarry - Herd & Bro's., Sylacauga Ala.
A Virtual Cemetery created by: mike reeves
Description: "Talladega County was the scene of the earliest marble quarries in Alabama. The pioneer workers were...the Herds. Early in the 1830's George Herd, a Scotsman, opened a number of quarries in Talladega County. Between 1838 and 1842 he was joined by his brothers [3]...". "Miller & Herd" is seen on some 1840's stones/slabs. John Herd sold his quarry to Dr. Edward Gantt in 1845, and it became known as Gantt's Quarry. "H. P. Oden & Co." were in joint operation with the Herd Brothers in 1838, "H-O" logo, and were the successors of the Herd Business in Winterboro in 1853. ("Early Tombstone Record of Talladega County, Alabama" c. 1973 by Carolyn Lane Luttrell). The broken corner of the slab of David Murray, Jr. (1760-1840) has "Miller & Herd", while "HURD" was initially cut into the lower corner of the headstone of Mrs. Darthula Maria Wilson (1832-1859).
