There is reference to the preaching of Caleb Fly in the foregoing posting.There is further reference to a Stone in the Goshen Methodist Church Cemetery inscribed, "C. Fly".It is thought that this stone is marking the place of final rest of Caleb Fly. I have no reason to doubt that the remains of a Caleb Fly are beneath the stone, thus marked.
However, there is reason to believe that Caleb Fly, son of "Rev." John Fly, b. 1/1/1772 ended his days in Yalobusha County, MS. and was buried in one of the Yalobusha County cemeteries.The stone marked, "C. Fly" in Goshen Cemetery is very probably the Caleb Fly, son of Lawrence Fly, and therefore NEPHEW of the Preacher Caleb. Others of the Lawrence Fly children and/or grandchildren are buried in this cemetery. There are a Ladd-named daughter and her children there. It is credible that Lawrence's son be buried there, and unlikely that Caleb, Lawrence's brother, returned from Yalobusha or had his remains transported back from there.
Further in this matter, I have visited the Goshen Cemetery and viewed the slab of rough stone, with "C. Fly" inscribed.Moreover, I have visited the several cemeteries in Yalobusha Co., MS. that contain the gravesites of Rev. David Fly and Rev. Joshua Fly; and at one time had the gravesite of Caleb Fly, their brother, according to local Flys.The story was told me that it became necessary to exhume and rebury the casket of Caleb Fly because of the planned creation of a road through his plot.It was noted at that time that his remains had petrified, and had NOT deteriorated at the time of the exhumation and re-interment.However, since that time, through a mixup of the record-keeping, the present location of the site of his re-interment has been lost. I was, therefore, NOT able to visit the present site of the burial.Therefore, I cannot in all veracity say that I have stood in front of the older Caleb's gravestone.
I report the above for what it may be worth in the record.
