"... And when you went before.
You left the Gates of Heaven ajar
That I might glimpse
Approaching from afar
The glories of HIS grace.
Hold, son, my hand,
Guide me along the path,
That, coming,
I may stumble not,
Nor roam,
Nor fail to show the way
Which leads us-home."

Poem: Open Door by Grace Goodhue Coolidge(8622).
Written at the fifth anniversary of her youngest son's death.

Memorial# 69395293
A note on this memorial indicates that Frederick Bradshaw was probably buried at Shawnee Run. Family records show that he was buried in a pine box made by his nephew in the corner of his property. Frederick was most likely an alcoholic and caused hardships on his family.

Thanks for all the information on this cemetery.

Darius Robertson

Thanks for making the changes.

Enclosed is some information about Darius you might find interesting and may want to place it on his memorial.

Darius Robinson came from Kentucky when he was 11, his parents living two years near John works' Mill. Moving to Jefferson County, they settled there for one year on a farm owned by Jacob Trumbo, moved to Coffee Creek (1817) and entered 160 acres of land. Darius' brother joined Captain Norris' Rangers and did duty for about one year at Solomon Deputy's blockhouse at Coffee Creek. After his short stay at Coffee Creek, where he married Nellie Wilson, Darius moved on to Cana.

At one time, when Darius was hunting, he saw a panther. He shot at the panther but only wounded it. Before he could reload, the panther attacked him. "And the," as he described it, "the fun began." With the aid of an axe and his dog, he succeeded in killing the wounded panther. "From Tip to tip," he said, "it measured nine feet."

Correction to Memorial # 53809762
Regarding James William Toliver Elliott (Memorial# 53809762)

Rod, I am the source of the info Dick Shyrock has on his site and that is listed in the bio for the above person on Find a Grave.

Re: "Some speculation: James served with the Union Army during the Civil War. Specifically, 39th Regiment Ky Infantry. Requires more research."

James W. T. Elliott did not serve during the Civil War. He was exempted from the draft because he was a widower with small children.

While you are updating:

His first wife, Margaret Harrison (Memorial# 73153314) is buried in Section J, Lot 7, Section N1/2, and his daughter, Rebecca Elliott (Memorial# 73558475) is buried in Section 15, Lot 7. Both are buried in unmarked graves at The Lexington Cemetery, Lexington, KY.
