Kennedy "Kan" Foster Cemetery

I recently photographed the Kennedy "Kan" Foster Cemetery in Erwin, Unicoi County, TN. Kan Foster is one of the original settlers of the Coffee Ridge area. There are five graves marked with fieldstones. The other three graves are probable "Byrds".

Kennedy "Kan" Foster b. ca 1814, d. ca 1891
Rebecca Kersawn Foster b. 1818, d. bef 1879

No apparent markings on any of the fieldstones.
