For Samuel’s wife Polly, it is not known when or where she died, and she may also be buried here.

C. Samuel’s third son, Joseph, married Elizabeth J. Quiett, and went to Iowa after the Civil War, as noted above (both buried Ringgold Co., Iowa). However, two young sons were buried in Indiana:

C. (3). Hiram D. McAninch / died Jan. 18, 1859

D. Samuel’s fifth son, Enoch George McA. (born 19 Oct. 1824, Casey Co., KY), buried his first wife:

G. Elias Grimes, M.E. Trustee (1849), and “Partition” Commissioner (1861), buried two girls (9, 11).

H. Job Headley, the third “Partition” Commissioner (1861), may have buried an infant child here (10).
