some dates that were unreadable were taken from the book by Shirley Dunn titled "Lincoln County, Kentucky Marriages 1780 - 1850 & Tombstone Inscriptions"

After trying to find (walking) on a couple of occasions over the past few years, I was never able to find this cemetery.  I was told that it was right at the end of the
runway at the Danville Airport.  Half of the airport is in Lincoln County.  Just a day or so back, I stopped at the airport to see if they could help.  Come to find out, in
about 1974 this entire cemetery was moved to Buffalo Springs to allow the extension of the runway.  They told me that in 1974, when the tornadoes came through, extensive
damage was done to the cemetery.  I spoke with David Gambrel and even he didn't know this.  I guess it was done and has been forgotten, after all that has been 36 years ago. 

Met with some very nice folks there at the airport.  They are the ones who showed me where the Shelby City African American Cemetery is located. I'm going back there to get
additional pictures before I send them to you.   And, Mr. and Mrs. Payne both work at the airport and they told me about the Payne Family Cemetery at Crab Orchard.  Sometimes
you get a lot of good information just by talking with people.
