Engleman Cemetery
Ky Hwy 590 Hubble Road
Stanford, Ky

I have a list of the people who are recorded in the Lincoln County Cemeteries books which I found in the library in Stanford.  However, since my husband and I have been working
out on the farm to restore the cemetery, I have found several others not known (or at least not listed) as being buried there. Some of the tombstones are not currently readable.
All of them are broken from their bases and many are broken in pieces. I do have pictures but the cemetery has been not only let go to the elements, it looks as if at some point,
someone may have tried to "bury" the whole thing.  I have also found a tombstone/memorial stone which is missing only the name but has the birth and death dates of someone who
" died as a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas" which you probably know was a Civil War prison camp in Chicago, IL for Confederate soldiers. I have been trying to find the
name of this man and have contacted Camp Nelson. The soldier(s) who may be buried there can and will with confirmation receive new military stones. One may be a
revolutionary war vet as well.

Quite a few of the stones I have uncovered are at or beyond what we were told marked the boundaries.  I think that we are going to have to find someone
 knowledgable in cemetery restoration to help us as the stones are so scattered and many are broken into multiple pieces.

I will send a listing of who is recorded as being buried there and those we have found in addition. Thank you so much for your reply and interest.
