CASEY COUNTY, KENTUCKY CEMETERY NEWSLETTER
VOL. 11 JULY/AUGUST 2008
big THANK YOU to Dorothy Hawkins who submitted
her photos of Phelps Cemetery and Evans Cemetery.
They have been posted to Find a Grave.
Also, Brenda Sanders found a single stone for
Bryant Cemetery and has posted it on Find a Grave.
This family cemetery is located off of Highway 49 on Bryant
Ridge Rd. in a field under a tree. There is only one
double stone located in this cemetery.
Suzanne Shepherd has recently posted cemetery lists for the following cemeteries on
the Casey County, KYGenWeb site: Beard (aka Bland
Cemetery), Bethelridge, Dogwood Gap (aka Adams
Cemetery), Evans, Gaddis, Roy and Glenwood.
The Casey County giant family tree project is
growing by leaps and bounds. Currently there are 53,000
people in the file and over 11,000 photographs. Thank
you to all that are contributing.
This past weekend I was able to get copies of
Casey County marriage bonds for the years: 1918-1931,
1934-35 and 1949-54. The bonds for these years generally
list besides the bride and groom, their ages and parents
and whether they have been married before. This is a
very time consuming and expensive project and I just ran
out of time to get more. There are several thousand of
these bonds and the ultimate goal is to create a
database to post to KyKinFolk and to also add the
records to the above mentioned family tree.
is working on getting the 1954-1956 obits. Unless we get
volunteers, we will likely stop there because the death
certificates from 1911-1953 are online.
Family photos are a great asset to both the
Find a Grave project and the family tree project. If you
have any old photographs of parents, grandparents, etc
that you would like to contribute please notify me at
the above e-mail address.
