Final Resting Place.......




Nestled in a group of trees a few miles below Elberton Ga is the location of what is believed to be the final resting place of our colonial grandfather Zachariah Butler. Located on what was the Dye family homeplace in Fortsonia Ga a small marker bears his name. If you get on Dr. George Ward Road the small cemetery is off the road a ways in a clearing. Patrick Butler b1760 is there also.

Hello there,

I am also a descendant of Zachariah Butler through his son Patrick. My mother and I went to Dr. George Ward Road but were unable to find the graves. We weren't exactly sure how far to travel down the road and where the clearing was exactly. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Julie
