Our cousin, Linda Lassater Edlow of Lake Oswego, OR. is planning to install a tombstone on the gravesite of William L. and Rebeccah Gunter Lasater (Lassiter).William L. was the son of William J. Lassiter and wife Keziah Walton.Does anyone know where William J. and Keziah are buried? I had assumed that they were buried in this Lassiter Cemetery in Chatham Co., NC that was flooded by the dam; probably in an unmarked grave.

The area of Chatham County, NC
where most of the Lasater clan was buried was flooded when the state of NC built Lake Jordon. All of the remains were moved to an area across the road from Gum Springs Church in Chatham Co. Linda and I visited this area a year ago and found the graves of William L. and Rebeccah.
Linda later contacted DURHAM MARBLE WORKS
PO Box 3535
Durham, NC 27702
and obtained a bid for this tombstone which will list the names of the children of William L. and Rebeccah . I suggested to Linda that other descendants of William and Rebeccah might be willing to contribute to this undertaking of hers. If you are descended from this couple and wish to contribute, you may make your contribution to Durham Marble Works. She hopes to have the tombstone in place in either May or June of this year.
If you ever visit the grave-site of those Lasater/Lassiters who had to be moved from their Lassiter cemetery before the flooding, you will certainly understand Linda's feelings concerning the subject. She is very reluctant to ask for any help but I am not.
It will benefit all of us and OUR descendants.
The bid for the stone is as follows.
Attached are drawings of the front and back for the monument for William J. and Rebecca Gunter Lasater, to be placed at the Gum Springs Cemetery. The specifications on the monument are as follows:

Material: Grey Granite, quarried in Elberton, GA
Tablet: 48" x 8" x 28", "steeled" (matte) finish on front and back, rustic
"rock pitch" finish on top and ends.

Base: 64" x 14" x 8", steeled finish on top, rock pitch sides

The steeled finish is an unpolished surface, which would complement the look
of the older monuments in the cemetery, which are mostly white marble.

The cost of the monument is:

135.40 NC tax

This would be the total cost, including lettering and installation. Please
feel free to call me if you have any questions about this.

Best wishes,

Ron Bartholomew
PO Box 3535
Durham, NC 27702
If you are interested in seeing the sketch of the front and the back of the stone, either of us will gladly send you a zip file by email.

Please let me know ( or advise Linda (

Thank you for considering this option.
