Hite Family Cemeteries

This transcription was taken from a book found in the Shelby County Public Library entitled, "Cemetery Records of Kentucky, Volume I, Jefferson County, Part I" compiled by LTC Robert C. Jobson (ret).   Additionally, Alan Murray has already done a transcription of this cemetery and his notes are included (*).  Please email your coordinator, or Alan, if you have any questions or comments regarding this family burial ground.  Still wondering if these burials are all in one location or in two separate cemeteries.
