Perryman Cemetery (Defunct)
Rutledge Road
Gentrys Mill
Adair County
Kentucky  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Perryman Cemetery was located on the left side of Rutledge Rd. in Adair County, KY at 37.06932, -85.16085. As of July 30, 2010, all remaining stones at the cemetery have been reinterred, although many individuals are still buried there in unmarked graves. Several gravestones were destroyed by a bulldozer, probably in the 1960s or 1970s. A few other gravestones were destroyed by vandals following that.

The fence has been removed from the property and it will no longer be maintained as a cemetery by the previous caretakers. All of the vandalized stones were pushed over the hill into the woods and have sank into the ground over the years.

Stones of the following individuals were destroyed, but this is far from a complete list:
Dominicus "Minn" Conover
William Hill Collins
Sarah Conover Collins
Peter Conover
Sally Leach Conover
Elijah Bryant
