Re: Wm Bishop Lamar, MD , died 1812, Hawkins Tn. buried?
Considering the amount of time that it would have taken to get the body back to Maryland through the Cumberland Gap in 1812 and the poor travel conditions that still existed at that time, as well as the fact that he had no family in the area, I would strongly suspect that he is buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in Tennessee.
Note also, his widow is also not in Names in Stone, nor were a lot of other early settlers because they either: a. couldn't afford a tombstone at the time; b. didn't have a tombstone maker in the area yet; c. their family had moved on; d. the tombstones existed at one time, but don't anymore; e. the tombstones are in a location that nobody has seen them in over 100 years etc.; or even d. nobody ever got around to getting a tombstone made.We are lucky that a cemetery exists at Marshall Hall for some of his cousin Thomas Marshall's family.The fact that they have built a four lane highway (MD 214), a super-mega-church and a Six-Flags near Ryley's Discovery, the birthplace of William Bishop Lamar, doesn't help matters on finding a burial ground for this family either.
Look at Middle Plantation, the seat of Marine Duvall, a Lamar ancestor, which has been excavated.There was a cemetery on the plantation holding 39 graves, but there were no tombstones.The book on these excavations, "Excavations at Mareen Duvall's Middle Plantation of South River Hundred," by William P. Doepkens, is actually quite fascinating.
