Winnie,
I put together the following using the census and Floyd Male Marriage index.
I have included the notes to myself where I need to go back and check other
records that I do not presently have access to.

To anyone who may be interested.

We have found a Cemetery in Franklin Co, in the Endicott? area, that we
THINK may be the Gillisipie Cemetery. It is located on Griffith Hill Rd
about 1 mile on the right off of Dry Hill.

I have pictures of the following graves which may be of interest to someone
who is researching Gillispi and Shively.

Mr and Mrs Harry V. Whorley
1939

Gillispie
Macy Ann Hobert M
Oct 24, 1912 July 25, 1906
Sept 15 1957

George R.
GLLISPIE(as spelled on marker)
1883-1954
Gone but not forgotten

Bettie A. Shively
wife of
J.D. Shively
Feb 24, 1855
Mar 23, 1989
John Davis

SHIVELY
Mar 8, 1861
Mar 29, 1944

INFANT
son of
J.W.& Etta
Gillispie

L.E. Gillispie
Dec 9, 1911
Nov 26, 1943

The next 2 are the ones in which I am interested .
The information does not match 100 % but we have enough background to
believe these are the correct persons.

Jayhu
Shivley
2/14/1860
Mar 14, 1939

We believe this to be John Shivley
who married Jenny A Gallaspey

Jin Ann
broken stone shows what could be May as birthdate and death date of

Mar 6, 1934

Her given name is Virginia Ann (as listed in a census when she was 7 yrs
old)
Father is George H.Gallaspey and Mother is Elizabeth (Van Lashy?)

Jenny as listed in most Census was born in 1966

This family was usually listed in the Long Branch census district of
Franklin County
