John Seaborn Espy


Here it is on Find a Grave.
 
 
Here is the site for the graves of John S. Espy and his wife Elizabeth J. Espy.  John Seaborn Espy was brother to my great-grandfather Thomas F. Espy.  John S. and Elizabeth are buried in the County Line Cemetery, address given as Henry County, AL.  One site claims that the cemetery is actually in Barbour County, AL. 
 
This cemetery is very easy to spot.  After leaving Eufaula headed to Headland, you will see the cemetery on the left as you go from one county to another. (still some distance from Eufaula.) Watty (Watt Espy) mentioned this to me some years ago, and that is how I happened to look for it.  In fact, Bud and I did stop there when we located it and took pictures. The cemetery is just beyond a Primitive Baptist (?)  Church.  There is a fence around the cemetery.  The Espy tombstones are tall, which makes the cemetery easy to find.

To see the burial site for John S. Espy's parents, Robert Marion Espy, Sr. & Elizabeth, click here.  For information about John S. Espy's brother, Thomas Franklin Espy, my great-great-grandfather, click here.  And, since we have a portrait of Thomas Franklin Espy, I am hoping one of John Seaborn Espy's descendents will see this blog post and provide me with one of him!  Thanks!
