Located on a small hill above the city of Grayson is the Old Grayson Cemetery. I share with you photos taken there during our spring trip to Kentucky this year (2023).

The Courier-Journal, Louisville, May 5, 1902 Grayson, Ky. – Frank O. Leedy was shot and instantly killed by town Marshall George Davis last night. The killing took place about midnight. Leedy had protested against being placed under arrest on the charge of being disorderly. A few words followed when three shots were fired by Davis, the last one striking Leedy in the heart. Davis surrendered to the Sheriff and claims that he shot Leedy in self-defense. There is considerable feeling against the Marshall. Leedy was popular young man.
