Tombstone Tuesday - Lucy Threlkeld

Lucy Threlkeld
June 2, 1879
Feb.  10, 1912

Buried Carrsville Cemetery, Livingston County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 8 December 2014.

According to her death certificate, Lucy Threlkeld died 31 January 1911 and was buried 1 February 1911.[1] The death date does not agree with the date on the tombstone. Since the death certificate was generated at the time of her death, or shortly thereafter, it is likely to be more correct that the tombstone.

The informant listed on the death certificate was O.L. Threlkeld of Carrsville.  The following notation was on the death certificate:  "Single girl who made her home with her brother O.L. Threlkeld."  Lucy's parents were listed as R.F. Threlkeld and Serene Owen, both of whom were born in Livingston County.

Lucy Threlkeld, age 21,  appears in the family  of Robert and Serene Threlkeld on the 1900 Livingston County census. Also in the household were Lucy's siblings Webb, Richard, Carry and Charles.[2]
