Though now going through rehabilitation through the efforts of many volunteer hours, this extremely over-grown cemetery is actually in Lincoln County, also known as Short Acres Cemetery, On left, 4/10 mile on Short Acres Rd (formerly "Givens Lane"), off old Hwy 127. The cemetery is approximately 2.4 acres, and may have stretched across the road at one time.  The entrance to the cemetery was on the north side, near the old L&N Tracks; hearses would come up present-day Johnson Lane, then called "Cemetery Road" or "Cemetery Lane."  Givens Lane originally went through into Lincoln County.  A web page containing information and photos for this cemetery is at  Stones for eight people have been photographed under the Lincoln County Rootsweb site.
