Tombstone Tuesday - George S. Lefler

George S. Lefler
Born March 19th 1824
Died March 19th 1846

Buried Smithland Cemetery, Livingston County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 15 April 2013.

George S. Lefler/Leffler is not listed in any Livingston County, Kentucky record, but a tombstone bears silent witness to his burial in Smithland Cemetery. The only other person of that surname in Smithland in the early 1840s was John S. Leffler, who appears on the 1840 census and is on the Livingston County tax lists[1] beginning in 1842. In addition, George S. Lefler is buried in the Doyle family plot in Smithland Cemetery. John S. Leffler's wife was Martha Ann Doyle, who was buried there in 1874.

I have no proof, but I suspect George S. Lefler was closely related to John S. Leffler.

[1] John S. Leffler is shown on the 1842-1847 Livingston County tax lists with town lots in Smithland. His household contains one white male over the age of 21.
