Church-Gollihue Cemetery, Carter County, Kentucky

Submitted by: Michelle Gollihue

The Church-Gollihue Family Cemetery is located on Stonewood Dr., which is actually a private road that leads to the homes of Joe and Louise (Gollihue) Church, Norman and Gail (Gollihue) Colley and Loraine (Yates) Gollihue. On top of the hill behind the home of Joe and Louise is the cemetery.
The very first grave in this cemetery was the son of Joe and Louise Church, John David Church in 1990.

To get to this cemetery from Grayson head north on KY State Route 1, go through Willard and turn left onto KY Rt. 1496 (Lost Creek) go about a mile to the first black top road on the left (EK Mines Branch) and turn left, travel this road until you pass the bus turn around and turn right up the gravel road before going up the hill towards Davy's Run. At the top of the hill there is a cattle crossing and a brick home.
From here you can look up on the hill behind the house and see the fenced in cemetery.
