Whips Cemetery

Please email your coordinators if you have any questions regarding this cemetery.  This listing was found from an old book at the Oldham County Library entitled "Old Cemeteries of Jefferson County".   It basically was an old folder with copied pages from other publications.  It was in very poor condition and falling apart.   "Copied and presented to the Filson Club of Louisville, Kentucky by Miss Ruth Murry, of Louisville, in January 1925."

Old Whips Mill Rd. on Dorsey Lane, now property of Jefferson Co. Parental Home.  Copy of stones made 24 Oct 1921.

Sacred to the Memory of Sarah Whips, consort of Wesley Whips and daughter of L. O. Leland, died 26 Aug 1926, aged 55 years.  "Go home dear friend and cease form tears, I must lie here till Christ appears, Prepare for death while life you have, there's no repentance in the grave."

To the Memory of James Whips, died 17 Aug 1833, aged 34 years.

All other stones have been removed and only small foot stones are left.
