Lavender family are found adjacent to Route 62 in Morgan County, Tennessee; just a few miles east of the Fentress County line.
They are very visible when approaching from the west; from the east they are hidden in a small alcove of trees.
Daniel was born in 1776, Elizabeth in about 1779. They came to Morgan County after 1805.
Daniel was a prominent citizen, donating land for the first County Seat, serving as Justice of the Peace and
he operated a tavern near the site of these graves.
Elizabeths maiden name is sometimes cited as Howard; I can find no evidence that this is true other
than that the Howards were nearby and the families had a close relationship.
