Hale County, Alabama Cemeteries


Carson/Torbert Cemetery

Contributed OCT 2000, by Gerald Hidle.

Hello Lisa,

This is Gerald Hidle with a "hot" notification I just received over the phone. My neice, Linda Boggs, and her husband were on a trip with friends to view and visit their property, which was a little southeast of Eutaw, Al., but in the Hale County area. The property owners discovered this grown over cemetery which had several graves located within it. Three white marble headstones were righted and the following inscriptions were noted:

John H. Carson d. 28 July 1823 32 years old, marker erected by wife

Cyrus Torbert U. Makefield, Bucks Co, PA d.29 JUN 1823 age 24 y 9 m 12 d

Sarah P. Torbert b. Union dist, SC 04 NOV 1802 d. Greene Co, AL 06 APR 1851 age 48 y 5 m 2d

This area might have been in Green Co. prior to it being Hale Co. It is located close to a horseshoe bend in the Black Warrior River. There are two of those closer to Eutaw, about 2-3 miles southeast. The first one from Eutaw sounds like the best bet She wasn't sure what roads were nearby, but from her description it would seem to fit in that area. Their friends owned the property, had a lodge on it and they did some fishing while visiting. Didn't get their names. Might be the Carson's, and Torbert's are searching for them. Just thought I'd pass this along.
