Bio Photo I have had the benefit of receiving the research done by several generations of the greater Carrington/Hutcheson/Lyon/Venable families & am using that source, pictures & the internet to try to leave an electronic semblance of the persons who have gone before us before I too pass on.

RE: Venable Cemetery D-53
I was able to get to the Venable and met with landowner. It is very overgrown with thick vines and dead trees on the ground. He has assured me he will get rid of the vines and the deadwood. I was able to dig around and find four fieldstone grave markers. He believes there is one more marked tombstone. I was able to locate enough of the rock fence to determine the actual size of the cemetery. After seeing this I suspect there are many more graves.

RE: James Freeman smith
Hi Jim, glad to be able to pass on the memorial. You asked about Martha Smith Brownfield. That info that is on her memorial came from an Ancestry family tree so it is really just a jumping off place for more research. Cashie

RE: James Freeman smith
Hi Jim,
Thanks for sponsoring the memorial for James Freeman Smith. If you would like to manage his memorial, please let me know, I would be happy to transfer. I wish I could help with your question about other unmarked graves in the cemetery. I entered the Find A Grave memorials from a transcription and have never been to the cemetery. I am related to the Brownfields so would definately get there if I lived anywhere nearby. Cashie

RE: D-53 Venable Cemetery
Jim, do you think it would be better to change the name on this to "Venable Cemetery D-53. I thought it would be easier for people to find. Just a thought.

RE: D-53 Venable Cemetery
Just got permission to access this cemetery and restore after the 15th of January. Let's hope for a mild winter so we can get to work and see what we can find. The landowner just told me there was once a fine old home just out to the front where this cemetery was. He says in hind sight wish he would have tried to save it but it was in disrepair. He is going to see if he has any pictures.

RE: Elizabeth Venable
I have not been able to find out any more yet but when I was there before I got the HPS location.


If the weather cooperates I hope to go tomorrow or at least talk to the landowner.

RE: Elizabeth Venable
The cemetery name should be D-53 Venable Cemetery. I have not had a chance to talk to the landowner but I would say it could be Henry Isaac. I am anxious to get to find that stone as well as see what else is there. The cemetery is located on route 1005 on the Gallrein.Farm. If we can get some descent weather I will do some more investigating.

RE: Elizabeth Venable
No, this is a cemetery that was not located when our county survey was done in the seventies. This land could very well have been part of their original land though. There are several graves marked with standing stones. The landowner says there are some more stones with names on them. He remembers the name Israel on one of them. I am anxious to get in there and see what we can find. I just wonder if James and Judith are buried here as well. Probably will never be able to prove it though. Shelby County Cemetery Preservation Board Facebook page will keep everything found updated if you want to follow us there.

Elizabeth Venable
I was taken to an undocumented cemetery in Shelby County, Kentucky today where there is a stone for Elizabeth Venable. It is not too far from the residence where we thought she might be buried. This was probably part of the same farm. I will post a picture to her find a grave memorial. There are several field stone markers standing above the ground cover. We are pretty sure we will find more stones if we can get under the ground cover. The landowner says he has seen one more stone with the name Israel on it. I am not sure when the weather will cooperate or I can get help to clear. I will keep you posted.
