Old Roberts Cemetery In McCreary County

Old Roberts Cemetery, McCreary County, Kentucky

Old Roberts Cemetery, which I believe is known as Roberts Cemetery #2 in McCreary County, is in the rural area of the north central part of the county.  The last turn was on to a rocky road that led back and up.  The cemetery sits on a small knoll, just a short walk from where we parked.  It is in the midst of trees, and has the lushest moss you can imagine – it makes your steps spring!  We found this cemetery through Ritchey’s geocache locator!  Head south on US27 from Pulaski County; turn left onto Hwy 1045; very shortly afterwards turn left onto a rock road known as Roberts Cemetery Road.  The geographical coordinates are N 36° 49.050 W 084° 29.029.

Find A Grave says there are 28 people buried in this cemetery.  I didn’t photograph every stone, but want to share some of those photos with you today.

Beautiful, lush and green!
