"NEW" Lafayette Co. Cemetery

I have just 'discovered' a 'lost' cemetery which I had not seen on any listing whatsoever before. It is called Provident Cemetery and has also gone by the name Leslie Cemetery and Bull Branch Burying Ground. It is in Lafayette county but just barely. The settlement that it serviced was called Jefferson and then later called Lewisburg and now it isn't much more than a few clustered farm houses, I believe. Jefferson was just north northeast of Hazel Green in Grant County and it's church and cemetery was just on the Lafayette County side of the Grant/Lafayette county line. You can see quite a bit of information at the following link: http://www.wislaf.com/lcgsBen.html and the list of people buried there at http://www.wislaf.com/provLoc02.pdf. This last one has 4 pages of listings and then the next four pages correlate to the first four pages, providing additional information for each of the listings on the first pages. Enjoy.
