Miller - Woodsmall Family Burial Ground

Please email your coordinator  if you have any questions regarding this cemetery.  I am the owner of the book mentioned below.  Copies can still be ordered from the West-Central Kentucky Family Research Association for those interested.  It includes over 148 cemeteries in Jefferson County alone!

Watterson Trail (old Jeffersontown Road)

"This cemetery is located on the old Jeffersontown Road, about 2 miles east of Middletown.  Chenoweth Run begins here on spot 150 yards east of old home (still standing) with approx. 8 graves, the condition very poor.  This old log home is the Dr. Robert Miller place.  I have yet to find his grave.  He was a doctor in Floydsburg, Kentucky in 1830, and was chairman of Floydsburg's first board of trustees.  They met in Miller's home in Floydsburg, on 30 Jan 1830 and chartered the town.  The Millers are not here but the Woodsmalls are.  The Woodsmalls are an Oldham County family.  My father once owned the Woodsmall place, one mile south of LaGrange." - Robert Foster Johnson.   Additional names were added to this cemetery listing on 081606 from a listing found in "Middletown's Days and Deeds; The Story of 150 Years of Living in an Old Kentucky Town" book.  Hence, the listing of the Miller burials, even though the stones are obviously now gone.

There is one lone grave on the old Tarbell Farm.  It lists Jane Womack, died 24 Aug 1855, wife of W. G. Womack  (Not sure why this listing was added to this cemetery in the Middletown book, unless it was a single burial which just happened to be close by.  I leave it here as originally written for the search engine to pick up the surname for those researching such.)

John Miller was one of Middletown's first trustees in 1799.  He was a Revolutionary Soldier and was granted 208 acres in Jefferson County by James Patton.  The writer believes this to be the John Miller farm and thinks Dr. Robert Miller was the son or nephew of John Miller."  This excerpted from Wilderness Road Cemeteries in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia by Robert Foster Johnson for the West-Central Kentucky Family Research Association.
