Here is the info on Harriet Gristy. I am going to include the entire entry for Gristy Burial Ground, as it pertains to the entire family.
Gristy Burial Ground,
"Benjamin Gristy and wife
Nancy followed their son-in-law, Granville Bond to
He 1831 he bought a handmill with small burrs from Abraham Logan on Logan Creek for ten dollars. It was a perfect God-send to his neighbors as they had access to it free of charge or toll. At times, it was used day and night. It was laborious work but it was better than cracking the grain in a pestle or grating it with a tin pan grater.
In October 1838, James, a 27 year old son, died, and according to Kentucky custom was buried on the homestead, thus establishing the Gristy family burial ground.
The graves have not been cared for nor fence kept up so only a few of the stones remain in an open cultivated field."
Benjamin Gristy (20 Dec 1781-28 May 1858)
James Gristy (5 Mar 1811-7 Oct 1838)
Harriet, 1st wife of Joseph Gristy (4 Apr 1834-2 Sep 1864)
A foot marker N. G. probably stands for Nancy Duncan Gristy, wife of Benjamin Gristy, who died in 1863.
Markers M. G. and H. G. are puzzles to the recorder. (Recorder was Kenneth Clark; date of recording unknown)
