Floyd's Fork Burying Ground

 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.  The data listed belonging to the Brinley's and the Gentry's was supplied by Mary Anne Reiss, a Brinley family researcher.  Some of her notes were used to replace those dates not legible from the stones themselves.

This cemetery is located north of Hwy 155 (Taylorsville Road, 2 miles west of Fisherville)

It is not certain when this survey was taken, but going on the fact the book's copyright was 1981, it must be assumed it was a time before that date.  The book states that the owner of the property where this cemetery lies at this time belongs to a Carl Gatewood.  The cemetery is located at Route 2, two miles southwest of Fisherville, on spot on roadside 20 feet from curb.  The graveyard has approximately 150 graves.  The author states "this site seems to be where an ancient church stood.  The church must have been of logs as no cornerstones are seen."  This is not a complete listing of graves, but the author has stated that he generally names the oldest stones of a cemetery in his work.

This cemetery has also been called the Floyd's Fork Baptist Churchyard (Page Updated 042805)
