Stained Glass Gravestone in Cave Hill Cemetery – Jefferson County

Ensor Plot

During our visit to Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky, the first weekend in October, we chose just the perfect moment to visit this gravesite.  When we drove past, this stone captured our eye immediately.  If we had come earlier or later in the day the view would not have been as spectacular.  The sun hit the stain glass to make all the colors pop and look amazing.

Clyde Franklin Ensor, Sr., June 20, 1922 – November 17, 2009.  Beloved husband and father.

Anna Ashcraft Ensor, October 23, 1924 – August 10, 2003.  Beloved wife and mother.

I do not know anything about the family but wanted to share this glorious gravesite with you.

  1. It seems that Mr. Ensor was quite the generous soul! ( https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/louisville/obituary.aspx?page=lifestory&pid=136092723 ). Founded a parts manufacturing business. Sat on the board of the Baptist Hospital. Among other things. There is no mention of Anna Ensor Ashcroft in his obit, but doing a search on her turned up the Anna Ashcroft Ensor Learning Resource Center. ( https://bsk.edu/learning-resourceslibraries/ ). Perhaps she was the first wife, and the second, listed in his obit as Jennie Cull, left that little gem out? I just thought that his having that ornate of a headstone, there had to be more to the story. And there is! Too bad he’s not a MCBRIDE! Then I’d be tracking him with more passion. Lol.

  2. How unusual and striking. Enjoy reading your daily email as it reminds me of our brief meeting at the MD to KY & Beyond conference,
