Comments: Overton Shifflett is my GGGGG Grandfather on my mother's side.

One thing that has stayed with me is I remember going to see my Great Grandfather and we had to walk across a log over a creek to get to the house and there was some kind of fruit tree right where you crossed over.

I know that both Merry Augustine Shiflett and his wife, Elizabeth Morris, are buried in a cemetery on the mountain in Haneytown. In 1977, before my great grandfather passed away, he took me there but I can't find my way back. Any information on where it is located would be nice.
