I didn't know there was one.
Do you know when James died? I don't know when Elizabeth Jane Guthrey Son died either.

James Son died in July 1880. The Fayetteville library has one article listing the burials, written around 1980. The 1908 plat map (Center township) shows a location - very close to where I live, but I can not find any remnants of a small cemetery in that area. I thought maybe I was looking on the wrong side of the street or on the wrong lot.

Thank you.
Do you have Elizabeth Janes' dea date?

Fayetteville should have had Sanborn Insurance maps that would pinpoint the location if that is not something you have already done. If not in the library try Fayetteville Municipal Library. In fact, ask at the historical library and the municipal libraries if they have any records.

I'll go thru some books here to see if I can find some clues.

I'd help but I'm in Texas.

I looked in my Masters, Robbins, Drain records and nothing mentioned a cemetery: only the marriage between James and Elizabeth Jane.

May be a different James Son. This one 1803-1880 and was married to Margaret Trotter 1814-abt 1880. But James could have had an earlier wife who died. They lived near Farmington and had several children, some also buried in the James Son Cemetery. The cemetery was in Prairie Township until 1880s and then was part of Center township. This area was later annexed to Fayetteville.

I've not heard of a James Son Cemetery, but there is a Son's Chapel Cemetery located in the East Fayetteville area. There is a Nancy A. Son (1801-1872) shown buried there on FindAGrave.

I did find the location, but the headstones are all gone. The owners had heard there was a cemetery in that area, but the stones were gone when they purchased the land a few years ago.

Awwww....that's too bad. Have you checked the Fayetteville Public Library to see if the cemetery was ever surveyed before the stones disappeared? (Provided of course the graves had headstones that were inscribed.)
