The following cemetery works were done with contributions by Alan Murray (AM) and excerpts from the book,  "Wilderness Road Cemeteries in Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia", by Robert Foster Johnson, for the West-Central Kentucky Family Research Association.  None of these cemeteries have a complete listing.  Alan's webpages are here at Jefferson County, Kentucky Cemeteries.  If you have additional information about these cemeteries or it's inhabitants, please email your county  coordinator (CC).  An (H) in the notes stands for Hebrew writing on the stone that was not included.  A big thank you goes out to Deborah Campisano and Alan for their knowledge of these cemeteries.
