Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the old cemeteries and they are disappearing. Some in my area are grown up with trees, they actually are in woods. Stones are broken or completely gone. My ancestors are in these cemeteries and they are disappearing also. I plan on recording info and taking pics, as I can, before those that are left becomes history. Seeing this tells me there are thousands of graves that are forever gone already. I would be happy to turn over management of a memorial that isn't in my direct ancestory lineage. Please dont be offended if it is and I do not want to give it up.

RE: Davis and Ligon Cemetery
Thank you so much for this. I look forward to hearing what you find. I live in Arkansas but all my mother's people are from that part of Kentucky. I have not had much luck finding the info on Cynthia Ann Davis. I have posted what I have found on Ancestry. I know she was married to Murrell Albert Lynch in 1845 and it appears that by 1850 they were divorced. He was declared insane and can be found living with his brother in 1850. I can't find her in 1850. I have found her parents in 1850. If you find any info on them I will really appreciate. Thanks again, Bob E.

Davis and Ligon Cemetery
Does this cemetery in Hopkins County still exist? If so, are there still any headstones there. John and Sarah Davis and their daughter, Cynthia Ann Davis are my direct ancestors on my mother's side. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Western State Hospital Cemetery
It's not for a visit. I'm trying to identify all institutional cemeteries nationwide (see link on my profile page).

If you can find the spot on Google Maps, just right-click on the spot and select "What's Here?" That will give you the coordinates.

RE: Old Unknown Richland cemetery
Yes that sounds really good. I will see what we can find out about the cemetery. I tried to find you on Facebook but didn't have any luck. If you'd like you can add me as a friend on Facebook.

RE: Old Unknown Richland cemetery
I wouldn't mind cleaning it up, and we don't mind cleaning it up by volunteering. We would just like to see it cleaned up and back in good shape. It's a shame that someone let this piece of history go like it has been. We just don't want to go in there and clean up and someone else reap the glory for it. We've got a few other people that are willing to help clean it up, and if we get a crew of people to help us then it wouldn't take no time to clean it up. Also where are you located at?

RE: Old Unknown Richland cemetery
My fiance said that 20 something years ago O'Bryan came in and cleaned it up and my fiance kept it bush hogged until he started a new job that took up a lot of his time. We aren't sure who owns it but we are trying to find out ourselves who owns it, we wouldn't mind keeping it up but would like other people to help us keep it up. Considering it's the only piece of history left in Richland.

Ephriam Brinkley that was hung
Hi, Shelia. I saw your post regarding the hanging of Ephriam Brinkley. The info I found in Earlington Bee newspaper 1895 stated that Ephriam Brinkley was lynched by his neighbors for supposedly shooting another neighbor in Nebo, Ky. in 1895. This Ephriam was Ephriam, Srs. son and my great great grandfather's brother. In my research I found an ad the following year which said that the wife of the man who was shot which admitted that she had shot him. So he was wrongfully hung.
