Shipley Cemetery

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is at the Shipley Cemetery in Nashville, Indiana.  It is also known as the Kelp Cemetery and is located on Jackson Branch Ridge Road.  It is next to a small house, but is not on Private Property to my knowledge.



We stopped by the small cemetery of only about 27 interments on September 6, 2015.  There is no where to park, so we pulled off the side of the road.  Luckily, Jackson Branch Ridge Road is not very heavily traveled, so we didn't have to worry about being in the 
way.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our first stop is at the grave of Dorothy Allender.

Born: 1906
Died: 1923

Her grave is next to that of Floria Allender.  It would seem that they may have been sisters.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


This is the grave of Flora E. Allender.

Born: 1921
Died: 1923

Her grave is next to that of Dorothy Allender.  They may have been sisters.

Here we have the grave of Captain George Washington Allison.

Born: December 25, 1825, Mercer County, Kentucky
Died: April 21, 1911, Nashville, Brown County, Indiana

He was married to Rachel Rogers Allison (1832-1909) on October 12, 1850.  She is buried in Shipley Cemetery in Nashville near him.

They had many children:
Alonzo Allison (1851-1926) - buried in Greenlawn Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana (he was the editor and publisher of the Brown County Democrat)
Adalaide Allison (?-?) - unknown

This is the grave of Susan C. Lawrence Ferguson.

I have no further information about her or her family.












~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


This is the grave of Imogene Henderson.

Born: January 20, 1929

I believe that there was at least one family member buried near her, Virgil Henderson (?-?).



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here we have the grave of Virgil Henderson.

Born: July ?
Died: February ?

His headstone is broken and what is pictured is all that remains.  I am guessing that his name is Virgil.  I believe that he is a relation of Imogene Henderson (1929-1930) shown above.
