Shively Cemetery

 Please email your coordinator if you have any questions regarding this cemetery.  This listing was found from an old book at the Oldham County Library entitled "Old Cemeteries of Jefferson County".   It basically was an old folder with copied pages from other publications.  It was in very poor condition and falling apart.   "Copied and presented to the Filson Club of Louisville, Kentucky by Fincastle Chapter, D.A.R., Nov 1934."

Copied 15 Oct 1963 by Mrs. M. Arthur Payne, 312 E. Fifth St., New Albany, Indiana and Mrs. O. F. McDowell, 16736 Murray Hill Avenue, Detroit 35, Michigan.  Mrs. McDowell is a Shively descendent.  This listing was left in the order as originally transcribed, so you might want to use your browser's search feature to check for a surname.

Located on Dixie Highway about one quarter of a mile beyond St. Helens, on the left side of the road.  The cemetery adjoins the Hardy Funeral Home, Shively.  

A tall beautiful obelisk-type stone marked "Shively" dedicates the cemetery:

In Memory of Christian Shively, Soldier of the American Revolution, Born in Pennsylvania, Settled on 1000 acres in this section in 1780.  He, his wife, and five generations of his family are buried in this cemetery.
