Meriwether Family Cemetery

This transcription was taken from "The Kentucky Genealogist", Vol. 23, No. 2, dated Apr.- Jun. 1981, a quarterly publication of the Kentucky Historical Society.   This cemetery was copied by Roberta S. Disponett.  It was originally located on the property of William Meriwether, who came to Kentucky in 1805, at the end of Lees Lane at the Ohio River.  In 1980 this land was owned by Borden Chemical Company, and was known as the Lees Lane Landfill.  This cemetery was removed to Cave Hill Cemetery on 15 May 1912. 

"There were probably others buried in this cemetery, but their names are unknown to me.  In researching the Meriwether family of Jefferson County, Kentucky, I learned about this cemetery from Meriwether descendants, and from the records of Cave Hill Cemetery." - Roberta S. Disponett

  Pease email your coordinators with any questions regarding this graveyard.

Originally located on the property once owned by William Meriwether, this cemetery has since been moved to the grounds of Cave Hill Cemetery
