Mt. Zion Cemetery

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is at Mt. Zion Cemetery in Brown County, Indiana.

GPS Coordinates: 39.12163, -86.18818

This church is located just off of State Road 135, near Stone Head and Story, Indiana.  It is not to be confused with Mount Zion Church Cemetery which is on the opposite side of Nashville and has an old frame church sitting in front of the cemetery.  I have already done a blog entry on that cemetery and you can visit that here.  This is a fairly old cemetery that is marked by a large, downward sloping hill that drops into the treeline.  There are graves dotting that hill and down at the bottom by the trees.  I am not sure if this was an intentional part of the graveyard or if it has dropped over time.  There are many old graves here, a few of which may have been early Henry Cross graves, though I am still trying to get confirmation of that.  The sign in front of the cemetery appears to be newer (see above) and states that the cemetery has been there "since 1834".  There is also a metal arched sign that crosses over the gravel drive.  I am sure that this cemetery is still in use as the graves closer to the road and nearer to the far treeline and the fences appear to be newer.

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

Our first stop is at the grave of Elizabeth Ellen Ping Elkins.

Born: January 29, 1870, Indiana
Died: November 7, 1897, Brown County, Indiana

She was the daughter of William J. Ping (1847-1904) and Martha A. Moore Ping (1842-1909).    Both are buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.

She had a few siblings:
Rilla J. Ping (1872-1896) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Clarissa R. Ping Hedrick (1876-1898) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.
Henrietta K. Ping (?-1898) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.
Martha L. Ping (?-1898) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

She was married to Calvin Elkins (1867-1955) on February 27, 1888 in Brown County, Indiana.  I am unsure as to whether or not they had any children.

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

Here we have the grave of Vernice Ault.

Born: March 8, 1922, Story, Brown County, Indiana
Died: March 8, 1922, Story, Brown County, Indiana

She was the daughter of Clarence Ault (1890-1958) and Zona L. Sturgeon Ault (1897-1976).  They are both buried in Duncan Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.

Had she survived, she would have had several siblings:
Lowell Ramon Ault (1916-1959) - buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, Cass County, Indiana (he was a World War II veteran)
Lola. L. Ault Friskey (1917-2012) - buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, Cass County, Indiana
Robert C. Ault (1920-1999) - buried in Duncan Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana (he was a World War II veteran)
Dora A. Ault Morgan (1923-2017) - buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, Cass County, Indiana
Leonard Glen Ault (1926-2008) - buried in Garland Brook Cemetery, Bartholomew County, Indiana (he was a Korean War veteran)
Dorothy Ault Cooley (1927-2008) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

She has a simple hand carved fieldstone set back at the treeline and down the hill.  It is almost surprising that it has lasted better than most of the other headstones.

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

Next we have the grave of Sarah Ann Hatton Ault Morrison.

Born: August 31, 1836, Indiana
Died: April 12, 1911, Indiana

I am unsure who her parents were or if she had any siblings.

She was married twice.  Her first husband, who is shown on the headstone beneath her name, was Martin Ault (?-?).  They were married on January 15, 1860.  He served in the Civil War in Company H of the 82nd Indiana Infantry. I have not been able to find where he is buried, but I assume since she married her second husband right after the war was over, that Martin may have been killed in the war.

Her second husband, whose name she bears, was John S. Morrison (1820-1885).  They were married on June 19, 1866. He has a memorial stone nearby her in Mt. Zion Cemetery.  He served in the Civil War in Company I in the 44th Indiana Infantry, though that could be wrong.  The headstone is very worn and hard to read.

She had four children that I have found so far:
Barnett Morrison (1867-1900) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Andrew Morrison (1870-1931) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Albert B. Morrison (1873-1905) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

She was the first wife of John Wiley Brown (1860-1942) on December 18, 1880 in Brown County, Indiana.  He is buried near her in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.  I am unsure if they had any children.

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

Died: May 27, 1847, Brown County, Indiana

I am unsure as to who her parents were or whether or not she had any siblings.

This is the memorial headstone for David Lawver.

I have no information on any family for him, but he may have been the son of Solomon Lawver (1810-1880) and Sarah McDonald Lawver (1817-1880).  I haven't found any mention of their burial sites.

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

 Here we have the grave of Hiram Mabe.

Born: 1794, Danbury, Stokes County, North Carolina
Died: December 24, 1855, Van Buren Township, Brown County, Indiana

I don't have any information for his parents or any siblings.

He was married to Lucinda Barrett Mabe (1790-1873) in 1818.  Her name is listed below his on the headstone, but she also has a separate headstone nearby. 



They had several children:
Elizabeth Mabe Lawles (1818-1901) - buried in New Bellsville Cemetery, Bartholomew County, Indiana

Ruth Mabe Crouch Clark (1828-1871) - buried in Coloma Cemetery, Carroll County, Missouri (she is listed as being buried in Aaron Crouch Cemetery in Brown County, Indiana.  This is where her first husband is buried, but there is no evidence that she was buried there as she has a headstone with her second husband in Coloma Cemetery)
Nancy Mabe Matlock (1833-1895) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.

The inscription at the base of his headstones reads, "Hiram Mabe was a member of the Chritia(n) Church five years,. and died in the (full) triuph(s) of the Chri(s)tian faith."  The items in () are listed this way as they are out of line with the rest of the letters and some are spelled wrong.  I did no corrections.

Nancy Mabe Matlock (1833-1895) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.

He served in the Civil War in Company  D of the 82nd Indiana Infantry.  His name was spelled "Maloy" in the roster.  He enlisted in New Bellsville on August 30, 1862 and was discharged on May 12, 1863.

This is the grave of Catharine Price.

Born: November 18, 1813
Died: January 1, 1858

I don't know who her parents were or whether or not she had any siblings.

She was the wife of Evrith Price (1817-1857).  He is buried next to her in Mt. Zion Cemetery.

They had at least one child that I am aware of:
Susannah Price (1845-1857) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

It is interesting that under the name it is stated "His wife was Born...".  I have not seen this before on headstones without the husband's name included.  I also noticed at the base of the headstone, which has recently had a basic repair done do it, it looks like it is signed "Cross".  I know that Henry Cross had carved many headstones in Brown County, but I don't know if this is one of his or not. I am waiting for an answer on that.

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

We now stop at the grave of Evrith Price.

Born: April 21, 1817
Died: December 31, 1857

I don't know who his parents were or whether or not he had any siblings.

He was the husband of Catharine Price (1813-1858).  She is buried next to him in Mt. Zion Cemetery.

They had at least one child that I am aware of:
Susannah Price (1845-1857) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

~~~~~~~~~~

Here is the grave of Susannah Price.

Born: February 22, 1845
Died: December 17, 1857

She was the daughter of Catharine Price (1813-1858) and Evrith Price (1817-1857).  They are buried near her in Mt. Zion Cemetery.  As far as I am aware, she had no siblings.

As I entered these headstones and their information, I noticed something rather chilling.  Twelve year old Susannah passed away before Christmas Day in 1857.  Her father Evrith followed her less than a fortnight later and her mother passed away the day after her father.  So far, I haven't been able to find anything about it, but it makes one wonder if the death of young Susannah was too much for her parents to bear or if there was a terrible accident or disease that slowly claimed all of them.

Here we have the grave of Mary. E. Mabe Hurley Williamson.

Born: May 8, 1823, Danbury, Stokes County, North Carolina
Died: September 21, 1908, Van Buren Township, Brown County, Indiana

She was the daughter of Hiram Mabe (1794-1855) and Lucinda Barrett Mabe (1790-1873).  Both are buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.

She had several siblings:
Elizabeth Mabe Lawles (1818-1901) - buried in New Bellsville Cemetery, Bartholomew County, Indiana
James Madison Mabe (1820-1896) - buried in Clayton Cemetery, Hendricks County, Indiana
William Franklin Mabe (1825-1911) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana (According to a family story, he and his father killed two bears on their property.  He also remembers "the night the stars fell" in 1833.  I assume that this means he witnessed a meteor shower.)
Ruth Mabe Crouch Clark (1828-1871) - buried in Coloma Cemetery, Carroll County, Missouri (she is listed as being buried in Aaron Crouch Cemetery in Brown County, Indiana.  This is where her first husband is buried, but there is no evidence that she was buried there as she has a headstone with her second husband in Coloma Cemetery)
Nancy Mabe Matlock (1833-1895) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana.

She was married to Ephraim Hurley (1820-1854) in 1840.  He is buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery nearby.

They had several children:
Hiram Hurley (1841-1916) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Cornelius Hurley (1843-1928) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
George W. Hurley (1845-1864) - buried in Nashville National Cemetery, Davidson County, Tennessee (served as a Private in Company C of the 6th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, but died of fever on August 5, 1864)
Elizabeth Hurley Ayers (1849-1929) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Joel M. Hurley (1852-1878) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

She was married a second time to James Edgar Williamson (1809-1877) in 1856.  He is buried near her in Mt. Zion Cemetery.

They also had several children:
Infant Daughter Williamson (?-?) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Lucinda Williamson David (1856-1937) - buried in Garland Brook Cemetery, Bartholomew County, Indiana
Cyrus Robert Williamson (1859-1929) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

This is the grave of Rebeca Williamson.

Born: November 29, 1838, Van Buren Township, Brown County, Indiana
Died: May 17, 1856, Van Buren Township, Brown County, Indiana

She was the daughter of James Edgar Williamson (1809-1877) and Dorcus Cordill Williamson (1809-1853).  Both are buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery.

She had several siblings:
Polly Ann Williamson (1848-1876) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Asa Williamson (1851-1852) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Infant Daughter Williamson (?-?) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Lucinda Williamson David (1856-1937) - buried in Garland Brook Cemetery, Bartholomew County, Indiana
Cyrus Robert Williamson (1859-1929) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Ruth Williamson Brown (1862-1931) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

There is a confusing inscription at the bottom of the headstone that reads:
"While on her dying bed, she remembered the afflictio of Job. Job C, 2nd."
I have no idea what this means.  I assume that the word "afflictio" is maybe affliction and the n was left off, which was not uncommon with these older stones.  Sometimes, the missing letter was added in just above or below the word.

Our final stop is at the grave of Dorcus Cordill Williamson.

Born: 1809, Kentucky
Died: April 13, 1853, Van Buren Township, Brown County, Indiana

She was the daughter of William Cordill (?-?) and Elizabeth Conley Cordill (?-?).  I haven't found any information for where they are buried or whether or not she had any siblings.

She was the first wife of James Edgar Williamson (1809-1877).  They were married on February 1, 1838 in Brown County, Indiana.  He is buried nearby.

They had a few children:
Rebecca Williamson (1838-1856) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Polly Ann Williamson (1848-1876) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana
Asa Williamson (1851-1852) - buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Brown County, Indiana

Hers was a little hard to decipher as it would appear that she had the nickname "Darky", which is carved into her headstone.  But, thanks to the birth and death dates being on the stone, I was able to track her down
