If we were in any other town, I would post some graves that I know. Many of the oldest graves from the 1820's still have heirs living here. The trouble with posting anything on "Byrdstown" Topix is that too many low intelligence people make pointless remarks. Any time a name is mentioned, someone begins making crude and disparaging remarks about them. You do not find this on Livingston or Celina Topix. They have several historical related forums. Sad for Byrdstown!

So, do those of us who have a strong ancestral heritage in Pickett County have to suffer with no information then? I'm a cousin to Richard Pierce (through Ewing Heatherly Pierce Huke--our common ancestor being Sion Benjamin Pierce)and would love to learn more about the history of the Byrdstown area. Richard is a great guy---taking time to tour my sister and I around the area visiting family history sites such as gravesides and property of our ancestors. Let's be positive and truthful in what we share so others can make a connection with their ancestral past. Just a thought! So...what is the oldest grave in Pickett?

If I were guessing I would say that it would be an unmarked native American's grave or were just referring to white people?

TFR, The Historical Group meets I believe on the 3rd Saturday at 4:00pm at the Library. Many of the oldest graves sites in Pickett Co. have unmarked graves which are possible from the early pioneers. The greatest loss for Pickett County was the burning of the Court House in the 1930's. Many records were loss, but the time you research would be before Pickett was formed as a County. Early in 1800's, Pickett was parts of Overton and Fentress Counties. The dividing line was near current Static. In the late 1780's all this area was Jackson Co. You have raised a good point. To establish the earliest possible grave, we do need to research the pioneer families a little closer. Richard Pierce could know off hand, but his studies were massive, I repeat massive of information of many of a great number of families. Mr. Pierce should be awarded greatly for what he achieved. I feel Pickett County should honor him with a plaque.
