These stones are NOT in the Shady Grove Cemetery but in a very old and abandoned one that we were very fortunate to find with the help of a piper cub and a cousin, William M Glenn, who used it to find the cemetery and hunters in the woods that guided him to it on the ground.

This photo along with all others from me are of headstones in OLD Shady Grove Cemetery not the new one. If you need a good location feel free to contact me but if you plan to visit this cemetery, be sure to call. These stones may be below ground at this point and the cemetery itself is abandoned and overgrown in the woods with cows grazing there. A cousin who is elderly and lives there has told me most people do not even know the other one exists.

I have had several cousins try to go there and ended up at the newer cemetery and the stones not there obviously. We do need to prevent this happening any more. It is basically at the intersection of Interstate 70 and 136 also called Old Kentucky Highway. It is near Sparta. You cannot see the cemetery from the road, it is in the woods and very overgrown. In summer there are tics and jiggers and who knows what else.
