Gethsemani Abbey Public Cemetery CD

Gethsemani Abbey Public Cemetery CD

Nelson County, Kentucky

My newest CD – Gethsemani Abbey Public Cemetery – is finished!  It contains 154 regular gravestones and one large, two-sided memorial stone for those who do not have individual stones.  There are a total of 286 people buried in the public cemetery located in front of the abbey.  I have included 25 additional photos, some of the abbey and grounds, shots of the cemetery and individual stones.  Also included is an Excel spreadsheet with an alphabetical listing of those buried at the abbey, including birth and death dates, and the number of the corresponding photo.  Photos are listed numerically in a separate file.  Many people who lived in the area surrounding Gethsemani Abbey are buried here.  I started taking photos at Gethsemani in 2003.  The change in some of the gravestones is dramatic – the deterioration has been devastating.  It is imperative to photograph, especially the older stones, before the information is lost forever.   The CD is $11.95 – which includes shipping.
