Making the trip to visit the final resting place of an ancestor can be frustrating and even disappointing. I have below some details of the directions to the graves of our Colonial Grandfathers Zachariah and Patrick Butler.
The pictures of their markers on this site are several years old and I have been told that the markers may be now laying flat on the ground and not easily seen.
The graves are located in Fortsonia Ga. below Elberton. From Hwy 17, get on George Ward Road. Located on the Dye homeplace off the road behind a house about 80 yards in a field.
I hope this helps any of you who want to make the journey to Elbert Co Ga. When you get there say a prayer of thanks for these two brave souls whose blood runs through thousands of us today.
If anyone has better directions please leave a comment for others who may want to try and find the location of these graves.
If you go out to the site and find them please let me know also.
