Rudy Burial Ground

(This is how it is listed on Find-A-Grave, but there is no listing for it on KYGenWeb. This cemetery has been destroyed and no longer exists, but I think the information is interesting, in terms of the Rudys being a prominent family in Louisville).

  • Location: This cemetery no longer exists. It was destroyed when Westport Road was widened.

  • Additional information:

The Herr and Rudy families were prominent landowners in Louisville, Kentucky in the 1700s-1800s. The home of George Vulcan Rudy and his wife, Eliza Herr (daughter of John Herr, Sr. and Susannah Rudy) was located at the Vulcan Rudy House at 4319 Westport Road. When Westport Road was widened, the graveyard was destroyed. With the widening of Westport Road and the development of a new subdivision on the old Vulcan Rudy land, the address of the house has changed to 1001 Westgate Place, but it is still listed on the National Register of Historic Places as 4319 Westport Road.

  • Interments:

This was thought to be the location of the graves of George Vulcan Rudy and his children, Emily Rudy and James M. Rudy.
