JONES CREEK CEMETERY IN TAYLOR COUNTY, KENTUCKY Russell Perkins 6-8-2001



Jones Creek cemetery. People that live in the area say no one ever goes there. It is located on a farm near the headwaters of Jones Creek. An easier access may be from the other end of the Jones Creek Road off White Rose Road. This road is still open back to the area near the cemetery. The log cabin home of Ray Altman is at the end of the road and is located on Jones Creek. The cemetery is a short walk from the Altman place. . I would not suggest anyone go into the area without permission from the owners of the land surrounding the cemetery.


I easily counted 75 gravesites, leading me to believe there must be many more that are not visible.

I located 18 engraved headstones and copied the information from them. I also took photographs of each one and will make copies of the photos available to interested persons. I can scan them and send copies by Email.

The earliest burial that had a engraved headstone was Nancy, wife of Samuel Jones who died in 1863. The most recent burial that had an engraved headstone was Mary M., wife of James D. Jones who died in 1943. It is my belief no one has been buried here since 1943. Knowing early settlers in this area of Kentucky rarely left gravesites with engraved headstones, leads me to believe the cemetery may date to about 1800.
