Hi,

I'm trying to locate a grave marker for Adam Lawrence Arney (1751-10/16/1802). The actual grave marker may state, "A. L. Arney". I only know that it's located in Burke County, North Carolina, I don't know, at what cemetery.

Adam Lawrence Arney, was the son of Jacob Arney, and was born in 1751, in York(town), York County, Pennsylvania.

His wife's name was Anna Catherine Lutz 4/13/1762-4/20/1862, she is buried in Caldwell County, North Carolina.

If you can help me, locate this grave marker, please let me know.

Thank you, for your time, consideration, and cooperation, I truly appreciate it.

I understand he died in Burke county. However his final resting place may not be in Burke county. His wife is in Caldwell county, she died in Caldwell county. Where she is currently buried was a few years earlier Burke county.
She is buried at LittleJohn Methodist Church. This is a very old cemetery. I saw no listing for her husband. On findagrave.com a note is made that her husband was Lawrence Arney not Adam Lawrence.
I reccomend trying to obtain land records for your Arney and then trying to locate the area now. Were they living in current day Burke or Caldwell? The Burke county library would be a good place to look or contact for land records.

Well, by looking at the North Carolina formation maps, I can see what you are referring to. Since the Arney family resided in what was once Tryon County, and later became Lincoln County, and the close relationships of Lincoln County with Burke and Caldwell Counties, it's entirely possible that he may have died and was actually buried in Burke County in 1802, but when Caldwell County was created in 1841, that the cemetery he was buried in, was then in Caldwell County. After all, his wife died 60 years after him. Finding the land records, has been a chore, to say the least. Thank you, for your response and your insight, I appreciate it. I wish I could remember where I found the information about where he was buried, because the person stated that he died on 10/16/1802, and his grave marker stated A. L. Arney.

Stan,
The information you posted at Find A Grave (http://tinyurl.com/mpudeau) states he is buried at Littlejohn United Methodist Church in present-day Caldwell County, NC. A marker exists for Catherine, but when the Caldwell County Genealogical Society published a 1985 survey of Littlejohn United Methodist Church Cemetery, there was no marker for your Adam Lawrence Arney.

Hey Stan, I recently got my hands on the WPA cemetery records for NC. In 1939 they read LittleJohn cemetery. There is a L.A.______ who died in 1802. 1802 is the only date given. The last name was unreadable even in 1939, of course the stone would have been 130 years old by then. I hope this is encouraging for you.
