Skeen Graveyard
Shelby Twp, Jefferson County, Indiana

Contributed by Jackie Owen, Sep 02, 2000 [edjackieowen@wmconnect.com]. Total records = 9.

Located east of Canaan at 8823 N. Scott's Ridge Road, on the property of Chales Hart, Shelby Twp., Jefferson County IN

I checked and rechecked both Rebecca's names and dates. I thought maybe I had misread Rebecca Matthews' stone because her death date was so close to Rebecca Skeen's. I thought maybe Rebecca Skeen & Rebecca Matthews were the same person. All the names listed were on just one stone, except for Rebecca Matthews her stone was in poor shape and hard to read, (the other one was in great shape and easy to read) but I think I have all the info correct according to the stones. I visited this graveyard in Apr 2000

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
