Hermann Hoops Family History
Contributed By: Rose Dailey, email@example.com
On Liberty Lane in Skylight, Kentucky, if you go down Liberty Lane until
it almost ends, you will come to a spot where there is a piece of ground in front of you and you either have to
go left or right. If you take the right, on the right side of the road is a very old
cemetery where the Adams family and their slaves were buried. They owned the
property before Hermann Hoops bought it. It is very old and people have slowly started taking down the tombstones.
The old home place was torn down in 1985 or 1986 when the new home off to the left was built.
a. Margaret Elizabeth Hoops was born 5/10/1905.
