Thompson Creek Cemetery
LaRue County, Kentucky
This listing was contributed by Edward Benningfield [firstname.lastname@example.org].
(Nelsonville map, Section 14-N-47 Carter coordinates) This small pioneer
cemetery is located west of the Thompson Creek and Raymond Peak road.
(It is near Lincolnís Boyhood Home) The cemetery is in poor condition
and is on a hill about Ĺ mile from the road. The fieldstones have no
inscriptions, but Mrs. Peak that lives near here in 1980 believes that
members of the pioneer Thompson family are buried there. Jack Thompson,
his father, and their family are buried in the New Haven St. Catherine
Cemetery. Therefore, if Thompsonís are here they likely died before
1850 and would be Jack Thompson grandparentís or before.
