Sarah E. Lyles, the daughter of William Albert and Mary Fowler Lyles, lies near her nephew Clifton Lyles and her niece Amy Lyles at Double Springs Methodist Church, Mountain Rest, S.C.

Joseph Lyles (1792-1870) is buried at Hopewell Methodist Church. The inscription on his stone reads

CORPL.
JOS. LILES
8 U.S. INF.
WAR OF 1812
 
This stone is the result of a letter written in 1922 by Mrs. L.A. Dickson of Seneca, S.C., to the government, saying that the grave of the veteran of the war of 1812 was unmarked and needed a suitable stone.
