Phillip Grable was the son of David Grable and Margaret Crawford. On the 1850 census Phillip stated that he was born in Virginia, but that was perhaps was before KY was a state and part of Virginia. His father built the home on Crooked Creek, Bullitt County, KY where Phillip grew up. It is in a gorgeous location and must have been a wonderful place to grow up. Phillip worked on their farm with his father and 2 brothers. They cut the logs, shaped them with an axe and chinked between the logs to keep the home warm. The stone chimney in the rear of the home has a capstone with the year 1787 and the initials "DG".
Phillip married Margaret Crawford in 1813 when he was 26. In 1818 his father David sold the farm to Phillip and went with other family members to Gallatin Co, IL. Phillip served during the War of 1812 as a musician in the 3rd Regiment of the KY Militia. He continued farming on his land until his death in 1851.
The Grable Cemetery is located on the South side of Crooked Creek Road, in Knob State Forest which is located in the Southern part of Bullitt County, Kentucky. It is on private property behind a locked gate. There is another way to access the cemetery, crossing a creek and a field and then climbing up a steep creek bank. The cemetery is covered with vinca and some of the gravestones have been broken by cattle. It is now fenced to keep the cattle out.
