After so many years, I really didn't expect a reply. That was very kind of you - thank you!
I'm not sure about the rumor - I need to ask my relatives that took care of it - they are still alive but live in KY now. I live in CO, but I am traveling to Clayton next week to visit the area for the very first time. I am anxious to track down my great grandfather's history as he spent nearly his entire 97-year life there and owned the poultry house there. Much of my family is buried in the Clayton Cemetery and McCormack Cemetery.
