This listing was found from an old book at the Oldham County Library
entitled "Old Cemeteries of Jefferson County".
It basically was an old folder with copied pages from other
publications. It was in very poor condition and falling
apart. Some of the material appears to have given credit to the
Filson Quarterly and miscellaneous other sources, even though this
transcription did not give author of work .
The names were written below as previously transcribed, so some of the
names may be confusing as to who is who.

*I could not verify all of the
people listed on the KYGenWeb page for this cemetery. It is in very
poor condition. The gate is padlocked, but the hinges are broken.
The wall is in good shape, and the grass is cut, but the cemetery
looks like it has been ransacked. Stones are toppled and broken, and
crypts have been opened and are empty.
James Brown’s home, Wildwood Farm,
is listed as the James Brown House on the National Register of
Historic Places. His son’s home, the Theodore Brown House (now the
Inn at Woodhaven, a bed and breakfast) is nearby, and is also on the
National Register of Historic Places. Unfortunately, the cemeteries
that were part of the homeowner’s original land are not always
included in the historic preservation area. (6/10/2015)
No mention made of
location. Some handwritten notes on pages in parentheses. It
was called the Brown Burial Ground.
Location: Brown Park, on Browns Lane just past the intersection
of Sherburn Lane
