OLDEST KNOWN HEADSTONE IN UNION COUNTY
This photograph was taken at the Ayers Cemetery just north of Myrtle. It is by far the oldest gravesite that I've seen in Union County. Dating from 1836, it belongs to a 5 year old girl named Eliza Ann Ayers. Her parents, Allen & Mary must have been among the very first settlers in this area.
