      Jerry Tate Dryden, a descendant of Joseph Covington, indicates there are several burials at the farm, but they are in two different places. One burial is next to the farm house (Elizabeth "Betsy" Covington) and the others are located across the road from the old farm house. Rufus Ward Hunley, the Great Grandson of Joseph Covington, carved many of the grave markers using local stones to mark the graves

      Joseph Covington's first wife, Elizabeth "Betsy" (maiden name unknown) died in 1830. Joseph buried her next to the farm house. A stone marks her grave next to the farm house. Joseph then married Elizabeth R. Hudnall, Richard Hudnall's daughter.

A different unrelated family had this marker inscribed for a different person (maybe there was an error on this stone) and Rufus probably got it (maybe free) and carved Joseph's name and info on the back side of it, then turned it around and put it at the head of Joseph's grave.
