The date on this marker is incorrect. As part of Ogilvie's Death Benefits Claim, the Calloway County Clerk Braxton Small wrote a statement in early 1843 declaring that Kimbrough T. Ogilvie was a resident of McCraken County (at the the time of his death) and that he died on November 30, 1842; adding that his widow died about seven days after his death.
The 1840 U.S. Census of Calloway County lists Kimbrough T. Ogilvie living next house to his son, K.T. Ogilvie, Jr. The old verteran was living with his wife, Nancy, and a unanamed young man, who is believed to be James Benton Ogilvie.
After the Census was taken, it is thought the grandson moved Kimbrough and Nancy Ogilvie to McCracken Coiunty, where they both died. It is possible that both were returned to Calloway County for burial. Asbury Cemetery is in the area of the county where the Ogilvies had settled after the move from Tennessee in 1830.
