 Revised March 2009

 

     Originally posted as part of the USGENWEB Internet project in 1998, and part of the Boyd County Public Library service to patrons 1999 thru 2007, this project continues to grow. The project would not be possible without the many hours devoted by the late Evelyn Scyphers Jackson during the Kentucky Historical Society Cemetery Grant Project. This guide is a compilation of notes, information and articles and directions that I have found through the years to form some historical background for each cemetery in our county.

     A special thank you to my husband, James David Klaiber who has spent hours driving me around the back roads of rural Boyd County seeking the tell tale signs of many of the county family cemeteries.  In 2004 this project continued with the aid of the newly formed Boyd County Cemetery Preservation Committee and volunteers especially to Joyce Whitlock and Marvina Webb who have been very patient with my every whim.  The original cemetery board members finished their terms in 2008.

     The Kentucky Historical Society Cemetery Grant Project, begun in 1968, utilized latitude and longitude as the only form of direction, citing U.S. Department of the Interior Geological Survey quadrangle maps.  However, not every cemetery, within Boyd County, was physically marked on those map series. The maps were created using topography and photogrammetric methods, utilizing aerial photographs. The original photographs were taken in 1952.  Revised photos were taken in 1967 and a final field check in 1968.

     The KHS Grant Project was done in several steps.  First the cemeteries were physically read and the readers wrote everything row-by-row entering data on pads.  The pads were then transcribed and typed on KHS forms again just as entered row- by-row or stone by stone.  The forms were to be handed in and then re-entered in a computer database.  Each county was to receive a print-out of the alpha sorted material.  The print-out received for Boyd County does not include all of the typed forms located and utilized to help create this locator guide.  Thus if the description cites an assigned KHS cemetery number it indicates that it was re-entered in the computer at KHS.  If no number is cited in the cemetery entry the form [for various reasons] never were tabulated by KHS.

     Cemeteries physically shown on the older quadrangle maps are indicated in this guide.  The 1953 and 1957 maps are housed in the Boyd County Public Library, Minnie Crawford Winder Room. Place-Name-Index, a computer disc [created by Buckmaster, Mineral, Virginia], contains names also from the quadrangle maps of the U.S. Geological Survey including the marked cemeteries.  Many cemeteries, in this guide, were not marked on any of these finding aids.  The compiler has utilized Travel Maps USA, produced by COSMI, to enter latitude and longitude provided from the Kentucky Historical Project.  Several errors have been corrected with this map system.  Older cemeteries have been discovered since the project and  the compiler and others are visiting as many locations as possible to verify the information provided. 


     Cemeteries in this listing may be described more than one time.  Through the years cemetery names have changed with land ownership. Every effort is being made to cross- reference these duplications. However, if we have not verified that a cemetery with similar description is definitely a match we have left both citations as separate entries.  We are sorry for this inconvenience. Please notify the compiler with additional information.

     When visiting any cemetery, courtesies should be shown to the surrounding property owner, even if a right-of-way exists. Please stop at the nearest home and get permission before crossing properties.  This also alerts others that you are in the vicinity and protects you, as well. Do not visit cemeteries alone.  Always take a partner.  Do not climb fences.  Instead look for the nearest gate.  Do not do rubbings.  Stones are fragile. Use photography instead. Do not use chemicals to clean stones nor place sealants over stones. What you think is a minor protection will eventually destroy the stone. An excellent source for proper cemetery readings and care can be found in A Graveyard Preservation Primer by Lynette Strangstad, published by the American Association for State and Local History in cooperation with the Association for Gravestone Studies.

         Any additions or corrections should be sent to compiler Teresa Martin Klaiber, c/o Deliverance Farm, 22937 Long Branch Road, Rush, Kentucky.
