Yager Cemetery #2
Also known as:  Jesse Yager Burying Ground

  • 10201 Cover Bridge Road (Kentucky 329), Oldham County, Kentucky, 40059 USA
  • 13 Memorials added (100% photographed)

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.

Cemetery #14 – 10201 Covered Bridge Rd., Prospect, KY

Directions to Cemetery: Take I-71 East out of the north top of Louisville to Hwy 329. Turn left onto hwy 329 and go 2.9 miles to 10201 Covered Bridge Rd Driveway. Turn right and go to gate. Open gate and drive .8 of a mile to the house. You will pass 2 old stone pillars and go over a cattle grating. At the house, a barn is on the right. Park at the barn and continue walking around the barn going away from the house until you come to a stone wall and clump of trees. The cemetery is inside of the stone wall about 3 feet tall. It is overgrown and has signs of being very old.

I visited the cemetery in June 1986 and again in July 2016 and took photos.
