Cemetery Listings and Gravestone Photos

My third CD – St. Joseph Catholic Church Cemetery Listings and Gravestone Photos is now available!  The list contains 293 individuals buried in the cemetery.  There are 239 photos of gravestones and views of the cemetery.  The CD is $10.00 plus $1.95 for shipping and handling.  Please email me at phyrit@roadrunner.com if you are interested.

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.

  1. Hello,
    Thanks for visiting my blog today, and leaving such kind comments. Bacon’s Castle is such a special place to my family. My mother grew up in the house, and my son was an interpreter there for ten years. The house is currently closed for renovations.
    You have a very interesting blog! I love genealogy. My grandmother’s famiy was traced back to Jamestown 1607. I told my son we have “deep roots”!

  2. I love genealogy, too! As you can tell! My husband and I never knew of Bacon’s Castle until we were researching Nicholas Martiau in March 2004. Visiting the castle was fascinating! It just happened that the Nicholas Martiau Society held their fourth tribute while we were there and they were kind enough to include us in the lunch and tour of the graveyard at Warner Hall – a totally unexpected surprise! Kentucky is my home, but Virginia has my heart!

  3. Hmmm. I’m not familiar with Nicholas Martiau…?? I’ll have to do some research!

    Virginia is my home, and of course, also has my heart!

    But I love Kentucky; we’ve only traveled through on our way to other destinations, but hope to visit some areas of the state one day. It’s beautiful!
