This area of Marion County, Kentucky, has always been affectionately know as ‘little St. Joe’. I have several aunts and uncles buried in this cemetery including Jim and Opal Thompson, William and Melinda Hill, and Mary Thompson. The most prevalent names in the cemetery are Beaven, Brady, Lee, Mills, Myers, Reynolds, Settles, Spalding and Thompson.
Mary Lydia Hill Thompson was my dad’s older sister. She died of scarlet fever two years before he was born. Mary’s daughter, Nancy Jeanette, was born four days before her mother’s death. The baby died seven or eight months later.
The church itself has been closed for several years, but it continues as St. Joe Community Center and is truly a vital part of the community.
