Scholefield Family Tree

The cemetery in Globe is the resting place for several Moore family members. Additionally, this is an excellent opportunity to remind everyone that you should always check multiple transcriptions whenever available.

Burial lists for the Globe Cemetery are located in three places online:
Gila County AZGenWeb — Contains what appears to be a reading of all gravemarkers in the cemetery.
The Arizona Gravestone Photo Project — Contains a large number of photographs of stones, but not all that appear in the above transcription.
FindAGrave — Contains almost 500 photographs of stones.

The following Moore family members are buried in the Globe Cemetery:

Mollie Shanley Moore

blockquoteMOORE, Mollie Shanley (Jun 3, 1874 – May 1, 1903), “At Rest” “We Loved Her” [the initials “D of H” at top of heart; heart contained words “Talitha Cumi”]1

Based on this transcription, I can firm up my suspicions that James Arthur Moore’s wife Mary A. from the 1900 Census found earlier2 is actually Mollie A. Shanley — she was alive until 1903. Additionally, photographs of her stone are available at arizonagravestones.org and findagrave.com. One photograph shows more of the stone, but the text is hard to read — on the other the text is clear and crisp, allowing for verification of the transcription.

Clara Moore ?Shanley?
On a whim, I checked the list of Shanleys on the transcription. Interestingly enough, I found that there is an entry for a three sided stone that lists a “Clara Moore, Died May 13, 1894, Aged 15 ms & 20 days.”3 I suspect that this was Mollie and James’s daughter. She was born a little more than a year after their marriage, and her sister, Maud T., was born about a year later — so it is possible! Additionally, I ran a check of death certificates for the area and found that one of the other children listed on the same stone was simply named Cecilia Rose instead of Cecilia Rose Shanley, meaning that Moore could be a last name. It seems that grandchildren might have been included on the Shanley stone.

Matilda J. Moore
This stone is not listed on the transcription (see why I said we need to check all possibilities). Eventhough Clara Scholefield’s mother seems to have gone by Jane most of the time, her stone lists her as Matilda J.4 The stone reports that she was born 10 Aug 1834 and from previous research, we can supply the missing month to determine that she died 8 Feb 1901.

John William Crampton
While Clara’s brother John Franklin Crampton is reportedly buried in Globe, there are no entries for him in any of the above resources. However, his children are noted. John William Crampton lived from 1883-1935.5

Rovilla J. Crampton
Eventhough Rovilla married a John V. Crowley in 1906, she is buried under her maiden name. This can lead to many assumptions about her life with Crowley. Maybe they divorced and she took back her maiden name? Or maybe her parents paid for the stone and did not put her married name on it? (Yes, I have seen that.)

Alfred B. Crampton

blockquoteCRAMPTON, Alfred B., Died Mar 25, 1891, Aged 1 mo & 1 day, Son of J.F. & R. Crampton

This is the name of the fourth child noted on the 1900 and 1910 Censuses for the Crampton family.6 A picture of his stone is available for reference.

Sarah Jane Kenyon
The stones for Clara’s half-sister’s family don’t add anything we didn’t already know. Sarah Jane Kenyon’s life spanned 1857-1957.7

Charles H. Kenyon
Charles lived from 1840 to 1906.8

Arthur M. Kenyon
And Arthur from 1878 to 1923.9

    Cecilia Rose (James Arthur Moore\’s Family)

    Re Clara Moore? Shanley?

    Patrick Rose married Sarah Shanley (sister of Mollie Shanley Moore), the daughter of Patrick & Annie Dwyer Shanley. Patrick Rose & Sarah Shanley had a young daughter Cecilia Rose who died in her early childhood, time frame in early 1890\’s. Cecilia, (deceased), is mentioned in Patrick Rose\’s biography in the book -Arizona-Prehistoric-Aboriginal-Pioneer-Modern, Volume 3 on page 645. The Rose and Shanley families are buried together in the same plot area in the Globe, AZ cemetery. I believe that this probably was the Cecilia Rose who is named on side of the same gravestone as her grandfather Patrick Shanley.

    Thanks for the note!

    Cecilia’s data is as follows: Cecilia Rose, Died Oct 1, 1892, Aged 4 yrs & 11 ms.

    Your information helps to confirm my suspicion that Clara Moore is the child of James Arthur Moore and Mollie Shanley.
