Elmira Ann Spikes Capehart was the wife of John H. Capehart, who is buried at Forrester's Chapel Cemetery in Randolph County, Alabama, per cemetery records. She appears on the 1870 census but is not found thereafter. I have been unable to determine a date of death or to find an official record stating burial location. On February 23, 1877, she wrote a letter to her daughter Susan in Arkansas, so she did survive her husband. On May 18, 1888, her son John F. Capehart wrote another letter to Susan in Arkansas. The letter states that he was writing from Forrester's Chapel, Alabama, and John F. states in the letter that he is "thinking of our Parents who sleep nearby." Based upon John F's letter, I believe that both John H. and Elmira are buried at Forrester's Chapel.
