Greetings,
I am currently attempting to find the location of St. Francis cemetery in Dayton, KY. The information I had when I went on my hour long driving search, was that it was located "on a hill" behind the where the old church was located, which was on (or I suppose, near) Rt. 8. Not finding much, I widened my search to the whole city of Dayton, and the surrounding areas. No luck.

Searching online led me to a site which noted that the old church was at "Third and Benham." Using Google maps/satellite to look at that site, there is nothing that appears to be a cemetery, or any hill. Looks like an industrial park (which I remember driving through).

With more searching online, I found information online which noted that the cemetery was on a hill "a quarter mill from town." Not knowing where the old town boundaries were, I drove and attempted to search a wide area, and came up with nothing.

If anyone knows where this place is (and I'm sure many of you do!) I'd really like someone to tell me!

Here are a few of the online sources I have for the place's location...
