The location of Shady Grove Cemetery









A visit to the Shady Grove Cemetery ...

We aren't confident of the location of the Shady Grove Cemetery, so consider the above location as an estimate.<1>

Introduction ...

Since our focus is on geography, we don't have any burial or interment information. Nor do we have any contact information for the Shady Grove Cemetery. For information of that nature, we suggest the Find-A-Grave<2> website: The Shady Grove Cemetery (FAG ID #26170)

We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based on a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. We found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site. Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.

Footnotes ...

<1>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<2>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- ) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point at the Shady Grove Cemetery. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.5847, Longitude: -87.0088     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for the Shady Grove Cemetery have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
