Athelstan Cemetery
Taylor County, Iowa
Uploaded 6/28/2011

Lewis Young Tackett, also spelled Tackkett, was born in Mason Twp., Fairfax Co., Virginia, son of Samuel Tackett and Sarah McElhaney and died Jan. 30, 1901 at Athelstan, Taylor Co., Iowa. he married Frances Fraker in 1849 in Cedar Co., Missouri. His birth date varies according to the source. Some family researchers give his birth date as Mar. 27, 1824. In the 1900 federal census his birth date is given as August 1813 which does not match his age at the time of the census (86). Using Tombstone calculator and his age at death as given on his gravestone, the correct date would be Aug. 25, 1821.
