Description

Headstone of John Bonnell Ivey (1834-1923) at Lake Hill Cemetery, located at 5950 Old Winter Garden Road in Orlo Vista in Orlando, Florida, in 2001. Ivey was the son of Robert Ivey and Priscilla Bonnell Ivey. He married Elizabeth Matilda Ann Roberson Ivey in 1954 and had six children with her: Hettie Caroline Ivey, Emma Rossaline Ivey, Lewis Henry Ivey, Robert Edmund Ivey, John Bonnell Ivey, and Joshua Robert Ivey. After his wife passed away in 1872, Ivey remarried Ann Beasely Ivey and had six additional children: Mary Jane Ivey, William Rufus Ivey, Julia Martha Ivey, Ida Viola Ivey, Mathias Lee Ivey, and Cora Gertrude Ivey. Ivey was appointed as the first sheriff and tax collector for Orange County by Provisional Governor William Marvin, shortly after the Civil War. He was later elected Justice of the Peace and Acting Coroner for the county.

The cemetery, just west of Orlando, is the site of the remains of various early settlers of the city, including Aaron and Mary Jernigan. Originally called Patrick Cemetery, the graveyard was originally located between Lake Lorna Doone and Rock Lake, and held the remains of members of the Beasley, Ivey, Patrick, and Roberson families. The four families formed the Lake Hill Cemetery Association in 1884 and moved the previously buried remains to the new Lake Hill Cemetery in Orlo Vista.
