Re: Wiseheart Ky and IL
On the farm next to where my husband grew up, there were some old tombstones.Over the years, the small cemetery had been poorly cared for and the stones were crumbling.
Tom's father salvaged two of them and for several years the stones have been propped behind the garage.Today we went to his old house, took pictures, and deciphered the writing on the two stones.
One of the stones reads:
Sep 25, 1842
age 45 years
It is broken off immediately below this so I have no idea if this is the end of the inscription.
The second stone is broken above the inscription:
May 22, 1872
I found in "Kentucky Marriages before 1850" that Conrad Wiseheart married Amanda M King May 17, 1819 in Nelson County Kentucky.
The farm is located near Flaherty, Meade County, KY.
