Research: "George Henry Lail at the time of the Civil War went to visit his cousin John McDowell Shawhan in Indiana. John, having been born in Kentucky, with many relations residing there who were wealthy slave owners, the Civil War found him sympathizing with the Southern Cause in a community anti-rebel. He was suspected of treasonable activities by the Hoosiers and at one time his life was in such that he erected a pole, said to have been 75 ft. high, surmounted a bell to call his neighbors to his assistance in case of trouble. There absolutely was no basis for such action, or suspicions, other than finding a man to take the place of GEORGE HENRY LAIL, in the Union Army. Young Lail had come north on a visit and was about to be conscripted in an army fighting his own brothers, and in a cause inimical to his convictions, so there was justification for his later father-in-law's action." {MPL. p. 68}

Subject: Re: Cemetery look-up

Date: Sun, 29 Apr 2001 08:33:17 -0700

From: Janis


Buried in the Wright Cemetery in Hartford Twp.

Location: Township 54, Range 3 West Section 20 - Off Highway 61, Pike County, Missouri. Some people (Shannon's) have been disinterred and moved to other cemeteries.


John S. Smith 11/25/1820 - 2/16/1888

Mary M. Taul w/o John Smith 8/28/1841 - 3/21/1899

Micah E. Taul 11/20/1806 - 9/6/1887 (father of Elizabeth Wright)

Elizabeth Taul wife of Charles B. Wright Sr. 5/12/1829 - 8/8/1910

Charles B. Wright 8/15/1824 - 1/12/1901
I don't know if Micah is Mary's father but the notes in the book says that he is the father of Elizabeth. If they have listed the burials in order (burial order) then all 5 of them are buried in a row. Hope this helps Janis
