Asenath Holland Copeland

An amazing new discovery from my last research trip to Clinton – Asenath’s gravestone, hidden.

This is at the Holland Cemetery. Previously thought to be lost, and now found. Difficult to read in the photo, it was easier on site, and it matches historical epitaph information. Asenath is buried near her parents.

Asenath, with her uncommon first name, is an import tie to Thomas’ ancestry – it ties him to his parents, Abraham and Asenath Holland. It is anecdotal history that Abraham and Aseneth were also buried here, more than likely lost when the state cut through the cemetery with Highway 56.

Time is ticking hard on this place. Any help is greatly appreciated.
