A new Kindle book available at Amazon – Gethsemani Abbey Public Cemetery List. In the early days of the abbey, located in rural Nelson County, Kentucky, the families that lived around it were very involved there – working there at times, going to church there, and many wanted to be buried there. It is such a beautiful place! The land in front of the abbey was used as a cemetery for these families, while the monks were buried in an area behind the abbey walls. This is a list of 287 people buried there, with birth and death dates (when available), and other information.
