Robert Franklin was known as being well off in land. He sold my grandfather his land that he bought in the early 1900's. His son-in-law Fred Douglas Guthrie had built the two story building next door to where I was raised up and about .02 a mile from the land he gave for the Guthrie Cemetery. I do not know if Fred Douglas had Robert Franklin buried in an unmarked grave at Guthrie Cemetery or if he had him carried to Elmwood for there is not a marked grave at Guthrie or Boshell for him. The Guthrie Cemetery was established in Aug 1876 when Fred Douglas's sister, Martha, was buried there and the Union Hill Church was organized in 1935 and it has a separated deed from Guthrie Cemetery. They were never a part of each other. The road separates the two properties until about 5 years ago when the Drummond Coal Co donated some land for the cemetery and it crossed the road and joined the church property

While I was at the Guthrie Cemetery, Townley, Walker Co., AL last Sat. I was looking at Robert Franklin Guttery's, wife, Caroline Guttery grave and I probed beside her grave and found an unmarked adult grave beside her. I think it is Robert Franklin Guttery grave. Will you please move him from Boshell, and add that he is in an unmarked grave (provided by Floyd Guthrie)
