Iolta Methodist Church Cemetary, Macon Co, NC




The last cemetery on this blog was Iotla Baptist. Now, it is Iotla Methodist in Macon County, NC – just down the road. I was mildly surprised that only a few relatives were buried at Iotla Methodist. But again, it is a small cemetery.

Clarabell Barnard Fouts was wife of William Theodore Fouts (1878-1956). My data on him shows he is also buried here but I did not see his marker. Theodore is my 2nd cousin, once removed.





William and Clarabell’s daughter Astor Fouts lived only 17 years.




I don’t know if I am related to Norman Lynch Barnard (1851-1927) or not, I took the picture for future reference. With the last name of Barnard chances are he is related to Clarabell Barnard Fouts. Also, with the middle name Lynch he may be a descendant of my g-g-g-g grandmother Mary Zilphia Lynch Rhodes (Roads) Trammell. It is unclear if her first marriage was a guy name Lynch or Rhodes (Roads). I think she was a Cherokee Indian.
