Dock Adkins/ Day Cemetery

Located at the top of the hill overlooking the middle fork of Elkfork, Morgan County, Kenutcky

Transcribed by Joan Skilbred June 2003

In early May of 2003 Joan Skilbred, William Fannin, and Paul Lyons Sr. went to the Dock Adkins Cemetery and photographed every stone there.

The following is a rough reconstruction of the layout of this cemetery.

Blank Stones are bricks that were placed as markers. Paul Lyons told me when he was a boy he helped to place many of those bricks.

Empty spaces are just that, but many have depressions indicating a used space.


This cemetery was transcribed in 1978 by J. Wendell Nickell and Joe Nickell. On their transcription the following persons are listed that there were no markers for when I was there:

J. E. Skaggs b. November __________, d. December 1918 Mason Insignia on marker

David Shawn Fannin b. Feb. 2, 1976, d. March 5, 1976

One grave has a different name now. I have no idea how this happened but the marker is a new one.

The marker is a double one for Dock Adkins and his wife Analize.

In the Nickell transcription, Dock Adkins wife is shown as Anjeline Day 1884-1960.

The marker for their daughter is an old one and it says daughter of D. M. and Analiza Adkins

There is also a discrepency in dates, the dates from the Nickell transcription are given in green.

Notes that I have made are in red.

In row 5 there are seven graves that had brick markers with names and dates painted on them.

Because of how the dates look I am guessing that someone tried to copy from an earlier faded date and possibly made a couple of errors.

This cemetery is at the top of a very steep hill and is evidently still cared for. There is an old iron gate with a cutout of Jesus and it say “Enter my Pastures” in one corner of the cemetery.

A new entrance has been made to the right of this old gate and the gate is partially hidden by brush.
