Roberts Cemetery


The Roberts Family Cemetery is located in South Irvine, Estill County, KY. All but two of the graves there are members of the family or descendants of L.C. Roberts and his wife Mary Taylor Roberts. The two people interred there who aren't family members were personal friends of Dud and Effie Roberts, son of L.C. and Mary Roberts. The cemetery is located on the property previously owned by Dud and Effie. It is now occupied by their grandson, Larry D. Horn, and his family, who bought it from the Roberts children after the death of Effie Roberts.

This documentation was done June 17, 1998, by Patricia Newton Brown, daughter of Fleming and Rowena Roberts Newton and granddaughter of Dud and Effie Roberts. She has copied all names and dates on these stones exactly as they were cut into the stone. She states she saw no evidence of any unmarked graves and only one that was unreadable, but she knows who that is. To the best of her knowledge, these are all the graves there. If she has left any unmarked graves out or have any wrong dates or names, she asked that you let her know. You can contact her at or Patricia Newton Brown, 1201 Walt Williams Rd., Lakeland, FL 33809-4616
