Tombstone Tuesday: Nancy Frazier Shiflett

Tombstone Tuesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers which asks bloggers to create a post including an image of a gravestone of one or more ancestors; it may also include a brief description of the image or the ancestor.

 Nancy E. Shiflett
Jan 22, 1895
83 years, 11 mo, 8 ds

Nancy Elizabeth Frazier Shiflett was my 3G grandmother, widow of Burton Shiflett.  At her death she was living with her daughter Nancy Frances Morris in Rockingham County, Virginia.  That probably explains why she was buried in the Pine Grove Church of the Brethren Cemetery rather than in the family cemetery in Greene County.

  1. Is this how we are related to Olan?

    1. Yes. We have the same 3 G grandparents -- Burton and Nancy Frazier Shiflett. He descends through Lucy Ann's sister Susan Clementine.

    2. Wow, to think that she was born in the early 1800's ... that was a long time ago!

  2. I plan to go there one day to clean the stone. It appears to have some form of mold growing on it. She is buried next to a grandson, who also died during the same time (1895). I wonder if the deaths were disease related.

    Wendy, I met you of your Jollett relatives, actually the wife of a relative, she is the daughter-in-law of Sarah Jollett Wyant and lives here in Greene Couty, a very nice lady too. She tells me her husband would love to talk about the family.

    1. Hi Olen. Please encourage your friend to contact me. This is great!
