RE: Rose Cemetery
The Rose Bend Cemetery is in Wolfe County, Arkill Rose 1877-1918 is buried in is Rose Cemetery, Breathitt County, Kentucky. There is also Rose Cemetery in Morgan County. He was a brother to my GGG grandfather. He was married to Clara Elkins and they had 8 children. Hope this is some help to you and your research.

RE: Kincaid/Profitt Cemetery
DO you know where the Rogers Elementary School is or was? Head in the direction like would go to Lee County on that road. On the right just past where you would turn to go on Big Andy Road or to Fincastle (hwy 2016, I think), there is a street sign that says "Kincaid Road" You will pass a couple houses, keep going on around til you comne to the cemetery. Should you miss the Kincaid Road and pass a gravel road on the left that says "James P Smith Road, turn around. IF you pass Cliff View went too far.

Dora Shockey Death Certificare
Hello Again,

Dora Shockey's Death Certificate says she will be buried on the "Alex Shockey Farm".

So was Alex Shockey's farm next to his brother's (Robert Mason Shockey) farm? Perhaps they are buried on another hillside?

I just feel since Dora died in 1912 and Alex died in 1949 they would have headstones and there were no headstones for them on Henry's farm.

Alex remarried and moved to Indiana with his new wife Rebecca, but that does not mean they aren't buried in Kentucky.

RE: Shockey Family Cemetery

I see what you mean about the photo being used on both cemeteries.

Henry and Catherine Shockey are my husband's Great Uncle and Aunt. Their son's still live on the family farm however the original house is in poor condition and therefore the son's live in other homes/mobile homes on the farm.

While visiting the old farm we ran into the son's working on the farm. While I was taking pictures of the headstones of Henry and Catherine, the son mention his grandparents up on the hill behind the house. I was thrilled as I had no idea where they were buried. We hiked the long walk up the muddy hill and sure enough hidden in the brush was my husband's great grandparents, Robert Mason Shockey and his wife. Hurray!!

Henry is buried right next to the old farm house while his father Robert Mason Shockey is buried on the hill behind the house.

Now these burial sites do not technically have a cemetery name so I just called it the Robert Mason Shockey Cemetery as they are all located on this farm.

I can tell you that Alexander Shockey and the other burials listed in the cemetery called Shockey Family Cemetery are not with Henry next to the house, nor on top of the hill.

However, Alexander is the brother of Robert Mason Shockey so the question remains as to whether all five of those people are buried on Robert farm without headstones or is this just an error by someone. I just can't figure out why someone would take Henry's headstone photo and say Alexander is their too?

RE: Chambers Cemetery
It could possibly been that Hattons owned the land where the cemetery is located. The earliest burial that I can see that is listed in the cemetery is
Chambers, Jefferson Davis 54331934
b. Jan. 13, 1862 d. Dec. 16, 1899
Most likely that is where the name came from - not certain why the cemetery is listed as Chambers and then is some places listed as Hatton - sorry that I couldn't been more of help for you on this issue.
I would suggest researching the deed of the cemetery. That might be a way to get some answers - or it could be as simple as at the time of A.R.'s death that the informant wasn't certain of the name and just stated Hatton as the name of the cemetery for the obit/death certificate. Might want to also get a copy of A.R.'s death certificate to see what the burial location is listed on his death certificate - and maybe research some of the other burials to see what is on their death certificates.
Best of luck in your endeavors.
