* Lasater Cemetery *

Laster Cemetery is located on the east side of Pritchard Road approximately ½ mile north of Taylortown Road. It is outside the park but was listed on some earlier park cemetery maps. The cemetery probably is mowed once or twice a year. The number of depressions equals at least the number of marked burials, and the depressions occur throughout the cemetery area. The cemetery may be full.
David Donahue recorded Laster Cemetery December 2, 2001. Brenda Fiddler and Bonnie Bradford recorded Laster Cemetery circa 1976.

ANDERSON, Grizzy Ann (Laster) 23 Dec 1838 25 Aug 1927   d/o Hugh and Beedy Laster
According to the Census records, Grizzane was married twice and had several children. In 1870, she was listed as living in her father's house with a child named Martha. Her last name was listed as Thomas. In 1900, Grizzane was listed as head of household and had two children, Robert and Bulia. (From "Maggie Ohio" at Rootsweb)
ANDERSON, Robert Cortez 09 Oct 1873 13 Apr 1956   s/o Grizzane (Laster) Anderson
Robert died of injuries he received during a fire on his property (Carroll Co). He set up a trust fund to be used for the cleaning of the cemetery. Some people thought he had money hidden in his house and over the years they were looking for it and destroyed the house in the process. I remember as a little girl, my grandparents took me there and I picked up a horseshoe that was on his property. (From "Maggie Ohio" at Rootsweb)
