bullet  Burial Notes:


By the way, all the later obituaries I found for the Hamiltons and Berrys give the name of this cemetery as "Pleasant Ridge Cemetery", but the sign on it says "Woolen's Corner Pioneer Cemetery aka Clark's Point or Price, Established 1836."

Looks like it took over 20 years to settle the estate. This last
record also suggests that William G. Ayres was the husband of the only
daughter mentioned as an heir in the 1835 pension list, Ann. Indeed,
the database Virginia Marriages, 1740-1850 at ancestry.com shows the
following marriage:
WILLIAM G. AYRS MARY ANN HAMILTON 14 May 1829 Bath County
