Boyle Area African-American Deaths

 

While transcribing Boyle County Death Certificates, 1911-1953 for inclusion on "Find A Grave" I came across many certificates where the specific cemetery was not named.  Some records simply stated "Boyle County" or "Danville" or "Junction City."  The problem is that Danville has at least two African-American cemeteries, Junction City has three, and Boyle County has over a dozen.  As "Find A Grave" will not let me enter these deaths unless I know the exact cemetery rather than let these people be forgotten, I have set up this page to include those deaths.

Buried in "DANVILLE" Surnames A through E
