Watch Before It’s… Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Eerily poetic Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Skip By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day When the dart hits a cemetery on a dreary October morn, that’s a bit eerie … and a bit poetic.Beulah Cemetery has the distinction of being the oldest cemetery in Troy proper. Beulah Primitive Baptist Church was organized in 1831. The church grounds were deeded in 1839 and the land on the east side of South Three Notch Street as Beulah Cemetery. With that historic designation, come some very interesting stories about the cemetery and its inhabitants. According to Bullard, John McIntosh was “buried by torchlight at night” at Beulah. Dendy Motes, who was born in 1798, had seven sons join the Confederate Army. Four lost their lives.Among the children buried at Beulah is Whitney Leroy Loe who died in 1847 at the age of one year. He is buried in the oldest marked grave in the cemetery. Two-year-old Park Lee died when her clothing caught fire when she was playing too close to a washpot during a hog killing in 1869.“There are many prominent people buried at Beulah including David Coskrey, who was born in 1808 in Belfast, Ireland,” Bullard said. “He and his family are buried in an iron fenced lot. Coskrey amassed a large fortune, according to his obituary, by ‘industry, energy and honest dealings.’”Bullard said some of the graves offer questions that cannot be answered.“Among them, graves that have either been protected or decorated with shells,” she said. “Many of the graves were mounds of sand and the shells could have been placed on them to keep the sand from being washed away during rains. I’ve not been able to find any information about the significance of the shells. A lot of trade went on between Troy and Pensacola so that’s probably why the shells were plentiful and why they were used for whatever reason.”Six simple iron markers mark the entrance of the cemetery.“There were seven at one time,” Bullard said. “I’ve not been able to find any information about them. They could have military significance but I don’t know what if any.”Although many of the graves have been lost to time and others are crumbling under aging weight, Beulah Cemetery, with its sloping bank and moss-covered trees, has maintained its beauty. The old cemetery is a quiet resting place, just off a busy highway, for those for whom it is their final resting place. Sponsored Content Published 11:00 pm Monday, October 1, 2012 Latest Stories Local historian Karen Bullard said that, at the center of the cemetery and the center of the folklore surrounding it, is the gravesite of Joel Winslett.“Stories handed down insist that in 1860, Mr. Winslett was buried sitting up in his favorite rocking chair, ” Bullard said. The gravestone seems to support the stories because, if Mr. Winslett were buried in a reclining position, he would not be well covered by the marker bearing his name.Beulah is the resting place of two doctors, 32 Confederate soldiers, several members of the Masons, veterans of the War of 1812, the Indian War and the Mexican War.

When she died in 1858, all the stores in Troy were closed for her funeral,” Bullard said.Granny Love’s son, Capt. Andrew Pickens Love, was a Confederate veteran and Troy’s first sheriff. He is buried at Beulah Cemetery next to his mother.“Among the war veterans interred at Beulah Cemetery was Captain William Henry Strickland C.S.A., who had a secret handicap,” Bullard said. “He could not see at night. When fighting occurred at night, Strickland would detail a man to explain conditions to him and he would command as though he could see.” By Secrets Revealed Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Picture: AAP/David Clark.Archicentre Australia director Peter Georgiev said it was a good time to renovate or construct a tailor-designed dwelling, given the low interest rate environment and competitive construction pricing widely available.“However, it is extremely difficult for average Australians to know what costs are involved in the many aspects of construction, which make budgeting purely guess work,” Mr Georgiev said.Greg and Sandy Ripps spent around $650,000 completely refurbishing their 1925 workers’ cottage.The property was raised and converted into two levels and a 12m extension added to the rear.Mr Ripp said he took great care to make the connection between the original building and the modern add-ons seamless.

They’ve done it for most of their lives, although usually for other people.Now they’ve decided to make a living out of their passion for buying, renovating and selling homes for themselves.And research shows they’re not alone.Independent housing analyst Michael Matusik believes close to two-thirds of the detached houses resold across southeast Queensland over the past decade have had a renovation between sales. “Furthermore, we have found that in one out of four cases, the renovation costs were close to half of the previous purchase price,” Mr Matusik said. “And in 10 per cent of cases, the cost of this renovation actually exceeded the cost of the previous total purchase price.”A new report by the Housing Industry Association reveals the renovations market is set to boom in the coming decade.It found a detached house building boom took place in the second half of the 1980s decade, which means those houses will enter the prime renovations age group over the next 10 years and provide a solid basis for growth in home renovations activity.Nationally, renovations are set to lift by 1.8 per cent in 2018/19, 2.8 per cent in 2019/20 and another 3.4 per cent in 2020/21 — lifting the value of Australia’s home renovations market to $35.93 billion.
