This has been a five year project, taking photos beginning in the fall of 2008 and through 2012, although I’ve just recently put the list together. This project is dear to me because my fifth great-grandfather, Captain John Linton, helped build this church. Many of my Linton, Moran and Edwards family members are buried here. Also, many of the early settlers of Washington County were laid to rest here. In a more modern happenstance, my husband’s father was minister of this church in the early 1960’s. Who knew we would share this common piece of history?
Included is an alphabetical listing of those buried at Pleasant Grove, including birth and death dates, and sometimes additional information. There are 856 names on the list. Within a few weeks I will make this into a CD that includes photos of most of the gravestones and can be purchased on my website through Paypal.
Do you have anyone buried in this cemetery?
Thank you for persevering with me through all these announcements of will book indexes. It is the only way I know to get the information to you.
And finally, all small volumes together in one – Washington County Will Books Index, names beginning with A through Y. The same as all other volumes it includes a listing of the names in the Washington County Will Books (A-W 1792-1902), includes a description of the entry (will, sales bill, allot dower, guardian settlement, administrative settlement, inventory, appraisement, division of estate, list of slaves, etc.), the book and page number. The list is alphabetized by surname.
For those who have many families who came through, or settled in, Washington County, Kentucky. This can be purchased for your Kindle or other reading device on Amazon – just click on the photo above.
The eighth volume of Washington County Will Books Index, names beginning with S and T is finished. The same as Volumes I, II, IV, V, VI and VII, it includes a listing of the names in the Washington County Will Books (A-W 1792-1902), includes a description of the entry (will, sales bill, allot dower, guardian settlement, administrative settlement, inventory, appraisement, division of estate, list of slaves, etc.), the book and page number. The list is alphabetized by surname. Found some Taylor’s in this volume I am interested in.
This is Volume VIII – last names beginning with S and T. This can be purchased for your Kindle or other reading device on Amazon – just click on the photo above.
Just in case you are wondering, when I am finished with the nine volumes (one more to go!) they will be grouped together for one huge index – for researchers like me that have all my lines running through Washington County! Smaller versions for those with just one or two family lines in the county. Happy researching!
There are two parts to the cemetery of Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church – the old part is where the original settlers, the older people, were buried. This part is rather small. The newer part is much larger. Only the older cemetery is included in this Kindle book. There is a path up the hill from the new cemetery to the old cemetery, at the top of which is a monument in concrete which includes pieces of broken stones. What a wonderful way to display them – and so much better than throwing them away! This book includes photos of all the stones in the older part of the cemetery, and some from the new, a total of 70 names. Included are photos of the pathway, monument stones, church and historical marker. The cemetery is located in rural Marion County, Kentucky, in the little town of Calvary. This book can be purchased at Amazon.
A new Kindle book is available – Rockbridge Baptist Church Cemetery List. This church is located in rural Washington County, Kentucky. There are 535 people buried in this cemetery. The list includes name, birth and death dates, and sometimes additional information. Rockbridge Cemetery is not in good shape – many stones are overturned. I feel fortunate to have photographed the cemetery while most were still readable – as some were not.
A new Kindle book available at Amazon – Gethsemani Abbey Public Cemetery List. In the early days of the abbey, located in rural Nelson County, Kentucky, the families that lived around it were very involved there – working there at times, going to church there, and many wanted to be buried there. It is such a beautiful place! The land in front of the abbey was used as a cemetery for these families, while the monks were buried in an area behind the abbey walls. This is a list of 287 people buried there, with birth and death dates (when available), and other information.
Not to bombard you with announcements about books, but I have another Kindle book available – St. Rose Catholic Church Baptisms. This book is a list of 4,840 baptisms from St. Rose Catholic Church in Washington County, Kentucky, from the years 1830-1886. Most records list the parents of the child and the date of birth. It is available for $5.99 at Amazon. Good luck with your research!
