Saturday Ritchey and I visited the beautiful St. Francis de Sales Catholic Cemetery in Scott County, Kentucky. It was an absolutely beautiful day, as you can see from the photos – deep blue skies, white fluffy clouds and lots of sunshine, but a moderate temperature of about 80 degrees.
The present church was built in 1820 at a cost of $3,600. Doesn’t that sound amazing in today’s world? This is the oldest parish in the Covington Diocese, and was a pioneer mission for East Kentucky. The parish, second oldest in the state, was formed by Maryland settlers who arrived in 1786; the first church was built about 1794.
The cemetery is across the road from the church – small, but very beautiful. Trees and several benches give visitors the chance to sit and enjoy the cool breeze while contemplating all those who have gone before.
I was amazed at how old the stones are – there are several Revolutionary War soldiers buried here. I share with you today seven gravestones representing some of the oldest people buried in this cemetery.
Obituaries – Bracken County, Kentucky
Nicholas J. Appleman
October 1, 1943
Nicholas J. Appleman, 73, well-known farmer, living on the Augusta-Minerva Pike, about three miles from Augusta, was found dead in his bed early Friday morning, October 1, 1943. Death was attributed to a heart attack.
News of the passing of this good citizen came as a shock, not only to the immediate family, but to residents of Augusta and the surrounding territory as well. A familiar figure on our streets, Mr. Appleman, on Tuesday evening preceding his passing, had attended a card party sponsored by the Mary Martha Society of St. Augustine Church at the Parkview Hotel, and seemed to be in the best of health and spirits.
Well known throughout Bracken and Mason counties, Mr. Appleman was a substantial and dependable citizen, and was liked by all. He was a man of worthy character, a devout member of St. Augustine Church, and a man who will be greatly missed in the community.
Mr. Appleman was born in Bracken County on February 12, 1870, a son of the late Fred and Katherine Staunton Appleman, and had spent his entire lifetime in the county.
Surviving are four sons and four daughters, all of whom reside in the vicinity of Augusta. They are Edward, Bernard, Thomas Frederick and Charles Appleman, Mrs. Fred Welte, Mrs. Joseph Ulrich, Mrs. James Weldon and Mrs. Carl Goecke. Also, he leaves a brother, Fred Appleman, and a sister, Mrs. Thomas Coughlin, both of near Augusta. Mrs. Appleman, to whom he had been married forty-four years, preceded him in death in 1940.
Requiem High Mass was intoned Monday morning at nine o’clock at St. Augustine Church by the pastor, the Rev. M. E. Tierney.
Interment, under the direction of the H. B. McClellan Funeral Home, followed in the Catholic Cemetery on the Hill.
William O. Adkins
The following taken from the Kentucky section of the Cincinnati Enquirer of Monday, May 25, tells of the death of W. O. Adkins, who married Miss Louise Fagan of Chatham, who is known to many of this county.
William O. Adkins, retired Covington postal official, died yesterday at his home, 105 Dixie Place, Fort Thomas, after a month’s illness. He was 75 years old.
Mr. Adkins, who had served under four Covington Postmasters, entered the government service March 3, 1899, in Cincinnati. He was transferred to the Covington Post Office July 1, 1900. He was promoted to the office of cashier June 1, 1906.
On February 1, 1914, he became Superintendent of the Latonia Station. After serving six years in that position he was returned to the main Post Office as clerk in charge of distribution of mails. He retired in 1926 after 27 years in the mail service.
Mr. Adkins was a member of Latonia Lodge, Knight of Pythias.
His widow, Mrs. Louise Fagan Adkins; one son, Audrey F. Adkins, Elwood, Indiana; one daughter, Miss Antha Adkins; one sister, Mrs. C. B. Necamp, Long Island, New York and two brothers, J. E. Adkins and E. E. Adkins, Houston, Texas, survive him.
Services are to be held tomorrow with burial in Highland Cemetery. T. M. Swindler, Latonia, is in charge of funeral arrangements.
