Absher, Albert Absher, Willie Absher. I have copied the information from the headstones for these individuals. Other names in the cemetery are: Rexroat, McKinley, Richards, Riggins.

The cemetery on state Highway 1323, Adiar Co, KY, next to the Egypt Christian Church & School (where the old town of Absher used to be)includes the following: Infant (two children, of J.W. & Bessie Absher), Jesse W. Absher, J.D. Absher, Sarah J. Humphress (wife of J. D. Absher), S. H. Absher, Stephen M. Absher, Eliza Absher, Infant (son of S.W. & S.I. Absher), Bertha Absher, Ida Willis (wife of Sinclair W.

Other names include: Nance, Davis, Lawless, Belton, Thompson, Willis, Holmes, Powell (Catherine Absher married Elhanon Powell), Sharps, Green. I also copied the Absher markers in this cemetery.

Also in this area is a single gravestone, amongst a grove of trees with the engraving: L. W. Absher, Co. "C", 18th Kentucky Infantry.

If you are interested in more of the details for any of these individuals, please let me know. Ellen
