|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The cemetery number (#14) and its location on the map can be found in the Oldham County Records, Vol. I, Cemeteries, by McKechnie and Dent; pub. by the Oldham County Historical Society, LaGrange, Kentucky.
These small home cemetery plots are so old that people have mostly forgotten about them and weeds and brush have grown up in them. I've been told that some have already been plowed up by farmers wanting to use the land for crops. Others still exist. Several years ago the Oldham County Historical Society went around and made a record of where these plots are located and what the headstones said, and numbered them for easier accessibility.
Location to the cemetery (in 1986): While driving away from Brownsboro on hwy 329 you will pass the entrance to cemetery #13 (see Yager-Clore Cemetery (#13)) which is about 5.6 miles from Brownsboro crossroads. Continue on down hwy 329 exactly .8 of a mile. Turn right and go between 2 stone pillars and over a cattle guard. Take this road back exactly .8 of a mile until it dead ends at a house. This house is currently being lived in (a/o 1986).
The mailing address is 10201 Covered Bridge Road (hwy 329), Prospect, Kentucky. The town of Prospect is in Jefferson County, but that Post Office services parts of Oldham County.
Once you reach the house, go behind and follow the road to the right back to the red barn. At this point you veer off to your right towards a group of tall trees. The cemetery is located in the middle of the trees and has a stone wall about 4 feet high around it. It is overgrown and has signs of being very old. Another way of getting to the cemetery: Take I-71 north out of Louisville towards Cincinnati. Get off at highway 841 and go to highway 42 which will take you into Prospect, KY. Once in Prospect, turn right at road sign #329 and go exactly 3.7 miles to get to the entrance to the road which will lead you to the cemetery.
I visited this cemetery in June 1986 and took photos.
