Cemeteries

Shiloh Cumberland Presbyterian Cemetery

IMG_7791

Shiloh Cumberland Presbyterian Church is located on the western side of Taylor County, Kentucky, just a few miles from the Green County border.  Shiloh church was begun in 1846 and the new building was erected in 1948, according to a stone tablet above the front doors.  This is a rural area of the county, but very beautiful.  And the day we visited the sun was shining, the sky a beautiful blue and the grass spring green!

As you can see from this photo, the cemetery is not large.  There are older graves around the large tree in the background.
