Shibley's Old Cedars

These beautiful cradle graves are located at Gill Cemetery in Van Buren, AR.
Eliza A. M.
Wife of
Henry Shibley
Born near Frankford, KY
Oct 12, 1818
Died in Van Buren, Ark
Apr 12, 1883
64 Yrs 6 Mos

Dec 1, 1815
Sept 22, 1902
Aged 87 Yrs

They are located beneath a group of wonderful old cedar trees. I was so pleased to find this sign nailed to the tree directly behind Eliza's headstone. What a wonderful tribute to his wife.
Theses Cedars were
planted Jan 1, 1891
by Henry Shibley and family.

(There is a bit more to the sign but I can't make it out.)
