Jack, If you are at the Middletown Cemetery again, could you take a photo and add an memorial for Cornelia Ruth (Connie) Guthrie. She was the wife of Blaine Allen Guthrie Jr. and the mother of Beth Guthrie. There are memorials for Blaine and Beth you have already created.

GUTHRIE, CORNELIA RUTH "CONNIE," 83, died on October 14, 2012, of complications from a stroke.

She was born in Middletown, KY, on July 17, 1929, to Sherman and Mary (nee Gamble) Wetherby.

She graduated from Jeffersontown High School and earned her bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Kentucky and Catherine Spaulding University, respectively. She taught general science and biology in public and private high schools in Jefferson County. She later administered and interpreted psychological tests for students, primarily in southern Indiana.

For more than 20 years, she volunteered with the American Red Cross, helping with disaster relief across the South and Midwest. She also was a volunteer water safety instructor.

Mrs. Guthrie was a historical reenactor, giving presentations on the lives of Peggy Chenoweth, one of the early pioneer women of Jefferson County, who survived a scalping the same year that George Washington became president, and of seamstress Betsy Ross. She was active at Locust Grove.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, advertising executive and local historian, Blaine Allen Guthrie, Jr.; her daughter, Elizabeth Wetherby Guthrie, who died of measles and encephalitis at the age of five; and her brother Sherman Henry Wetherby.

Mrs. Guthrie is survived by her sister, Kathryn Elizabeth Guthrie, formerly of Middletown and now living in Columbia, MO; her elder son, Blaine Alan Guthrie, III, his wife, Mary Stewart and their daughter, Lindsey Michelle Guthrie, all of Delmont, PA; her younger son, Bruce Gamble Guthrie, his wife, Rebecca Whitlow Guthrie and their children, Elizabeth Ann Guthrie and Steven Woodward Guthrie, all of Maryland Line, MD; and several nieces and nephews.

She enjoyed her black CAT for three years. Nephew Henry Gamble Wetherby and niece Sue Ray (Guthrie) Morgan in particular provided love and invaluable assistance during her final health crisis.

Viewings will be held at 2-8 p.m. Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at Pearson Ratterman Brothers Funeral Home in Middletown. Interment will be at the Middletown Cemetery at 10 a.m. Thursday October 18, 2012. A memorial luncheon will be held at the Middletown Women's Club at noon Thursday, October 18, 2012.

The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the Beth Guthrie Book Fund of the Louisville Free Public Library.

Pearson-Ratterman Bros. Funeral Home, 12900 Shelbyville Road, Louisville, KY., 40243,

Quillman Hill Cemetery
I went by looking for the cemetery and was unable to find it. Before I take up your time and "ask" to meet me somewhere, I will tell you what I found and maybe you can pinpoint me in the right direction. You mentioned that it was around the 8000 block. The part that confuses me is that there is (what looks like) an old church on the left and has 7900 as its address. I didn't see and houses in that particular area. Keep going straight up the hill until it ends at what looks like water treatment facility, but there are a few houses on the left and the woods are on the right down a hill. Did I pass it? Is there a place to pull off and park? And can it been seen from the road, or do I have to walk?

Yes, that is the one...I have been to Hillcrest (which had several Gagel's and Quillman's). I will try and find it tomorrow (Sunday) and if I don't have any luck, I might have to take you up on the offer and meet you.

Thank you for all your help,

The one in which the Gagel's and Quillman's are in. I hope this helps. I have found Risinger Cemetery (Bearcamp Rd), Hillcrest Cemetery (Manslick Rd), Shively Cemetery (Dixie Hwy), and Saint Andrew Cemetery (St. Anthony Rd, but I can't seem to find the Quillman Hill Cemetery.

I hope this tidbit of information can pinpoint which one.

Where is this cemetery located. I had some information that it was off of Blanton Lane, but couldn't find it. Any information would be of help.
