Floyd - Breckinridge Cemetery

Please email your coordinators if you have any additional information regarding this cemetery.  The material contained on this page was derived from the book "Wilderness Road Cemeteries in Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia" by Robert Foster Johnson for the West-Central Kentucky Family Research Association, which holds the copyright to this information.  The book was published by McDowell Publications in 1981 and I was told by the Association's President that it still has a very limited supply remaining.  Please contact them if you wish to purchase a copy of this book.

Located 1 mile south of St. Matthews, 2 squares west of Breckinridge Lane.

This cemetery is owned by Jefferson County and sits on north bank above Beargrass Creek.   There are approximately 25 graves.  "There exists some doubt that John Floyd was buried here.  Some scholars say he lies near his third and last fort, very near Floydsburg, Kentucky.  Mrs. Fannie Hunter, Todd's Point, Kentucky says he is at the Tommy Long place in Shelby County.   After 30 years research, I feel he is at his last fort, one mile east of Floydsburg." - Robert Foster Johnson
