MORGAN COUNTY KENTUCKY CEMETERIES
Compiled by Roger Gross
This is a listing of 392 known cemeteries located in the current Morgan
County, KY. If you are looking for cemeteries prior to the creation of
Morgan County in 1822 look in Bath and Floyd Counties as Morgan was created
from them. In the early 1900ís Morgan County was broken up and the
following counties where created from Morgan County - Elliott, Johnson,
Magoffin, Menifee, Rowan and Wolfe. So depending on the time frame the
cemetery you are looking for may be in one of those counties. This listing
is only for the current boundaries of Morgan County.
With so many cemeteries dotting the landscape of Morgan County and no
accurate record kept of who is buried where, you may have to visit the
graveyard yourself to see who all is there. Then there are so many graves
that are unmarked or the grave stone is no longer readable that you may
never be able to know who is buried where.
If you have any additions, corrections or directions to any cemetery listed
here, and you want to share it, you may send it to me by email at
dale2Rodgers@aol.com or by snail mail at 2830 Stop 8 Road, Dayton, OH 45414
and I will add it to my next update.

This information is compiled from old family records and information sent to
me by the great people of Morgan County Kentucky when they learned that I
was doing a listing of the county graveyards. To the many people of Morgan
County who have sent me information over the many years for this listing,
you have my gratitude and heartfelt thanks. Morgan County was my birth
place and home for many years and will always be my home in my heart.
My family line is the Isaac & Catherine Gross family from VA, and the
Eastley & Elizabeth (Durham) Johnston family from VA. They all came to
Morgan County and settled there. If anyone has any information they are
willing to share on these two families it would be greatly appreciated.
