County Farm Cemetery
LaRue County, Kentucky

This listing was contributed by Edward Benningfield [knobcreekboy@mindspring.com].  Total records = 4.

Copied in Summer 1998

(Hodgenville map, Section 23-N-47 or Howardstown map, Section 23-N-47 Carter coordinates. The county farm was a place that took in paupers around the turn of the last century. The farm was also referred to as sending folks to the "poorhouse". Most of the people here were elderly. The 1899 old farm map of Larue County shows the county farm to be on Hwy 84 between White City and Howardstown. I assume none of the people buried here have tombstones. Dink Taylor, a neighborhood farmer tells me, that the farmhouse is the first one on the left on Plouvier Road. Chapman Thompson was the manager of the farm for some time.
