I think I have found two of the people I am searching for in that cemetery. Does anyone know with this used to be in the town of Kenwood in 1911? Her death cert. states she was buried at Kenwood there is no date listed on the transcription for Minnie Williams and her husband was (David) Milton Williams the named next to hers. They had a son that died before them named Virgil Glennwood and I see a listing for a Glen Williams also listed near there names.
Any information about these stones the location of the cemetery or the people would be a great help, thank you. Robin Moulton

This cemetery is located at Low Gap on Little Paint Creek near Oil Springs, Ky. It is listed on page 56 of Johnson Co Cemeteries, Vol I. This is a large well known cemetery and anyone in the area can give directions. Hope this helps.

John
ps. This area used to be called KenWood.

Per some info I have, Milton Williams, buried in Ben Williams Cemetery was the son of Eliphus Preston Williams and Amanda Daniel Williams. Milton was a young boy when he died. This info supposedly came from Hattie Williams, wife of Leslie Williams. Eliphus Preston Williams was the uncle of Leslie Williams .

My husband and I tried to find this cemetery about a year ago, but when we got to where we thought it was there were signs posted to not enter the private property that we thought it was on.

Does it sound like we were in the right place? We just turned around and left, dissappointed of course.
