Fey Family Cemetery


transcribed by Marguerite Miller margueri@iglou.com

the transcription


The Cemetery is now located in Windsor Lake Subdivision (photo) off Arnoldtown Road in Jefferson County on the Connor of Windsor Lake Parkway and Regal Pine Court, on Lot No. 22. No stones are left on the site today. Some stones may have been removed when the building site began and other stones were removed later from Lot 22 to a drainage ditch between Lot 19 and 20 in an area called Commons. The residences of the subdivision are aware of the Cemetery being located on Lot 22. Bruce Board, President of the Windsor Lake Subdivision Association was most helpful in our search for finding the ditch were some of the stones were located. Many of the walkers of the subdivision have seen the stones over the years. I know this because of stopping and asking a couple of walkers with a baby stroller if they knew of a cemetery, they pointed us in the right direction. It should be noted here that the Cemetery is not part of Windsor Lake Subdivision. The deed is exclusive of ˝ acre for the graveyard. The graveyard is owned by the descendents of the Fey Families. On 11 November 2001 Bruce and Brenda Fey and Charles my husband, and myself went to the scene and dug up and removed some of the stones from the drainage ditch in an effort to save some part of the history of the families. It was necessary for us to piece them together like they were a puzzle. It is a sad sight for us to think that such a thing like this is happening today. All are rules and laws don’t mean much to those who will destroy the burial site of those who have gone before us. Sources used for this list besides the stones found, are the Church records, family records and in some cases death certificates. The idea here was to find as many of the people as possible that were buried there.
