farm was near the Blue Spring Branch along Doe Run Creek. The
cemetery is located on what was the farm owned by James S. Thomas in the
early 1800's. The farm has had several owners
over the years and was finally sold in plots. The cemetery has been
covered with trees, brush and vines for years. Since 1984 some of the
stones have fell off the base and some are broke. There was 10-15 large
limestone rocks that marked other graves. Jinsey Strader Thomas, 1st wife
of James is believed to be buried there.
James S. and Rebecca Seeley Thomas are my great great grandparents.
