Earlier in the week I published a post on James B. McFerran and his family – originally immigrants from Ireland before the beginning of the American revolution. To read more about this family click here.
Yesterday Ritchey and I visited Bellevue Cemetery in Danville, Boyle County, where many of the family are buried. The larger stone is for the parents of James B. – James M. and Ruth Brown McFerran.
Mrs. Ruth B. McFerran, born October 31, 1811, died September 26, 1885. ‘There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.’ Bellevue Cemetery, Danville, Boyle County, Kentucky.
J. M. McFerran, born November 26, 1809, died September 17, 1884. ‘Ask his neighbors.’
I’ve never seen such a simple line on a gravestone, but it speaks volumes.
James B. McFerran
Mattie Davis McFerran, James’ wife.
Leila McFerran Farris, James and Mattie’s daughter.
Lucy M. Welch, 1846-1927. James B.’s sister.
Elizabeth McFerran, wife of William Crow, 1837-1919. James B.’s sister.
William Crow, 1831-1900. James B.’s brother-in-law.
A few others are buried in this lot, probably grandchildren to James M. and Ruth Brown McFerran.
