Alfred S. Pryor (d 1890) and Emily Miller Pryor (d 1922) are buried here. Possibly their two youngest children as well, Vermie and Dottie. It is possible that alfred's first wife and child are also here. Is anyone able to locate their burial and is there an headstone. Alfred was a member of the Union Army and I think should have at least a small government issue marker. Someone please let me know. Regards, Richard Pryor

Is there an existing plot plan for the Petty Cemetery? If so then Alfred Pryor can be located. If no headstone exists, the US Army will supply a new one at no charge. Did you know that you can get new headstones for Veterans when one has been destroyed. worn beyond recognition, stolen, or simply not there? It is free of charge.:nod:sm
