VOL. 2 JULY
I will be in Ky. on the first week in Sept, 2007 to access the
repairs and upkeep needed at our Shreve Family
cem. "Pleasant Valley Church
Cemetery" on Ky. Hiway 49
near the Marion /Casey Co. line.
While there I intend to access the Malone and James Belden
which are located first and second roads on
Hiway 49 as you enter Casey Co. From Marion Co. you will
take the first road to the left for Malone and the second Road
to the left for the Belden Cem. That
is generally considered the Rush Branch area. They are in
very ,near extinction ,condition . I
wonder if any one local even knows of these
I will attempt to make arrangements to clean them and to see if
some perpetual care can be arranged for them. Any info any one
can provide of these small last resting places of Ky.'s Pioneers
would be appreciated. John C. Harmon

“Thanks for all you are
doing! I for one really appreciate your efforts, time and hard
work, etc.. to
this cemetery project. I promise to see to it that the one
cemetery in Dunnville (Rice
Cemetery) will be cleaned up this fall. I already spoke to Mr.
Davis about it.”

of the Falconbury Cemetery. He will
be doing quite a few more in the weeks to come. He has also
begun to scan the obituaries from 1961-1972.

“I would like to start a section
of the web site for your newsletters so please keep including me
in the list! Thanks for everything you have done and are doing
for Casey County!!!”
Suzanne has been posting the
lists of names and dates as well as a link to each cemetery on
Find A Grave where the photos may be
found as I complete them. To date the following cemeteries have
Baptist Church Cemetery
Christian Church Cemetery
Pentecostal Church Cemetery
Hill Mennonite Church Cemetery
Springs Baptist Church Cemetery
Baptist Church of Yosemite Cemetery
Gospel Church Cemetery
Jennie’s Chapel Memorial Cemetery
Lawhorn Hill Cemetery
Luttrell’s Creek Cemetery
Noel’s Chapel Cemetery
And now a little bit about the
Grave website. I am the volunteer coordinator for
Casey County. The goal is to photograph, transcribe and post all
tombstones in the county. In addition, maps and driving
directions will eventually be included as well as GPS
coordinates. Obituaries and photos of people may be attached to
the records. It should be a fantastic place for researchers to
find info they are looking for. Best of all it’s FREE!
I will be returning to Casey
County from October 8-13 and then again the last week in May. In
the meantime I will continue to add the photos that I have
taken, make a list of some stones that need to be
rephotographed and try to get the
mapping and driving directions done.
Thanks to everyone who has
volunteered to help. Many people who do not live in or near
Casey County have asked what they can do.
