Middletown Cemetery, Old Harrods Creek Road off US 60 across road from Middletown Elementary School

 

The following information was sent by Tim Jones from an excerpt from the publication, "Middletown's Days and Deeds; The Story of 150 Years of Living in an Old Kentucky Town".   It states "there are 282 names listed.  The verses which are to be found on many of the old stones have been omitted.   Many graves are without stones and several stones are so worn that the inscriptions are obliterated.  There are four vaults, one of which is practically destroyed.  Six doctors and seven ministers of the gospel are buried here.  The earliest date of birth of an adult is 1731 and the earliest date of death of an adult is 1812.  The stones which are defaced are probably of an earlier date.  The "L" following a date means that person is living at the time of this writing (1945), or that the date of death has simply not been added."   

Hallie Martinson (HM) is the first contributor (Cont.) of photographs for this cemetery.  Laura Jones (LJ) added a few more that were more recent burials and not listed in this earlier publication.  John L. Lloyd (JLL) added his father to the listing.  Feel free to send your family names if they reside in this cemetery to your county coordinator to include on this page.
