Since Ritchey and I visited Pisgah Presbyterian Cemetery in April of 2014, in Woodford County, I believe it to be one of my favorite small cemeteries. It could have something to do with the beautiful little stone church – founded in 1784, erected in 1812, and remodeled in 1868. It could have something to do with the cemetery strewn with tiny purple and white flowers on that beautiful spring day. But most likely it is the fact that there are many older graves, including Revolutionary War veterans that lie sleeping in the church yard. I want to share photos of six with you today.
William Kinkead was a Captain in the Virginia Militia during the Revolutionary War. He married Eleanor Guy. She and three of her children were captured by Indians and held during the year 1764, during which son Andrew was born.
I could find no dates on this stone.
