Mt. Sherman Cemetery
LaRue County, Kentucky

This listing was contributed by Edward Benningfield [knobcreekboy@mindspring.com].  Total records = 282.

Copied in Summer 1998

(Magnolia topographic map, section 16-L-47 Carter coordinates, about 1000 feet southwest of the north east corner) The cemetery is located just southeast of Mt. Sherman on the Sherman to Ward road. Perhaps the most interesting stone found there is a field rock that reads, "Rebecca Skaggs, Died 29 April 1863". There are several Civil War soldiers buried here including, James Skaggs, Abell Elkin, John Elkin, William Beauchamp, E. T. Lee, James Pierce, and George Ford. There was an old Baptist Church at this site at one time.
