Bate Burying Ground

Please email your coordinator if you have any questions regarding this cemetery.  This listing was found from an old book at the Oldham County Library entitled "Old Cemeteries of Jefferson County", pub. 1920s, with Alice E. Trabue contributing.  It states cemetery situated near Glenview on estate owned by Mr. & Mrs. Baylor Hickman.  Robert Foster Johnson noted in his Wilderness Road Cemetery book, pub. 1981,
that the property now belongs to Mrs. Jacqueline.  It is about one mile north of Zachary Taylor Cemetery on hill overlooking Ohio River on spot 100 yds. behind the beautiful cabin home of Mrs. Kirchner.  Approx. 25 graves.  This is the original Bate Family plot.  The owner says it was a land grant of several thousand acres, stretching all the way from Zorn Avenue and the Veteran's Hospital nearly to the mouth of Harrod's Creek.  The mansion of around 100 rooms still stands.  It is exactly 1/8 mile north of US 42.
