Today I share with you another database – this one of Holy Cross Catholic Church Cemetery, located in Marion County, Kentucky. Holy Cross, known as the birthplace of Catholicism in Kentucky, was established in 1785 when a group of Maryland Catholic families moved to Kentucky. It was the first catholic church west of the Alleghenies. The present church was built in 1823.
James Ballard’s stone is the oldest in the cemetery.
The database is an Excel spreadsheet of 1,098 names. The alphabetical listing includes birth and death dates and additional information if known. There is also a corresponding photo number. This does nothing when clicked since the almost 1,000 photos are not on my blog.
If you need a few photos, send me an email with the numbers and I will attach the photos and send in a return email. We will see how easy this works – depends on how many of you need photos! And please remember, I am Kentucky Kindred Genealogy! Just one person!
As I said with the first database, this is a work in progress. Let me know what you think. If you look at the red header at the top of the blog, you see different categories. If you click on marriage records only marriage records will pop up – same with wills or old photos. Under the database category will be all databases that I add to the blog. At this time there are the two posts about the 100 Years of Washington County Marriages and Holy Cross Catholic Church Cemetery Listing. More to come.
