Lou and Eb Foster - Lou Vannah Burton and Willie Elburn Foster, who were married in 1908 in Adair Co.  Eb was my grandfather's brother.
Burley Foster - Burley was my grandfather's brother, son of John William Foster and Nancy "Nicy" Alice Overstreet Foster.  I believe the story is that Burley went to Indianapolis and was in an automobile accident that killed him.
Mary Linda Foster - Mary Linda Simpson Foster - Burley's wife.
Lorenza Foster - the headstone says "Loranzy Foster", but the records show Lorenza.  Died not quite a year old.
Nicy A. Foster  - Nancy Alice Overstreet Foster - my great-grandmother.  Her headstone was broken off and is lying on the ground next to the other piece.
Charlie Foster - another of my grandfather's brothers.  Charlie also died young.  The story is that he went to Cincinnati to visit his brothers, James and Luther Foster, and contracted pneumonia while in Ohio.  He died shortly after his return to Kentucky

Barnett's Creek Cemetery Photos Contributed By: Jay Smith

Research on the Sapp Family indicates that they migrated to Adair County from Ashe County N.C. During that research Jay came across a tombstone in the Barnettís Creek Cemetery for the Sapp Children that were burned in the house fire in 1904. These same children were referenced in the Vitals death records posting of 1903-1904. A couple of the names are different on the stone than they are in the transcription of the records, but Iím certain that they are the same, as these were the children of Jesse and Nancy Sapp, who are also buried in the Barnettís Creek Cemetery.
