Re: WOODFORD CO. - MORTONSVILLE CEMETERIES

In Reply to: WOODFORD CO. - MORTONSVILLE CEMETERIES by Jim Sargent of 390

Jim, an old community cemtery is in Mortonsville, KY located behind a house. The house address is 755 Delaney Ferry Road, Versailles, KY 40383. At different times I have met two different owners of the house but that was a number of years ago. The house on a hill is on land that belonged to the Rucker family. Across from that place on another hill is land that belonged to Mortons. I am researching Mortons. Morton family members married Ruckers.

I went to two cemeteries outside of Mortonsville. One was in fair condition surronded by a stone fence and other was was absolutely a crying shame - just terrible.

The Woodford County Historical Society, 121 Rose Hill, Versaille, KY 40383, I think, is great. I located a lot of info there. It might have a transcript of the cemetery in Mortonsville and those nearby.

You may have already located the info that you were seeking but if not hope this helps.
Jay
