Last Saturday Ritchey and I found this small cemetery on the side of the road quite by accident. We turned left on Hwy 44 from US127 in Lawrenceburg, Anderson County, Kentucky. About 8 miles later we came upon the rock-walled cemetery on the left side of the road – very easy to see and close enough for an easy walk. The cemetery is between the small towns of Anderson City and Glensboro. This photo was taken from the car. After a bit of research found out this was the Bucy Family Cemetery.
