Red Hill Cemetery
LaRue County, Kentucky

This listing was contributed by Edward Benningfield [knobcreekboy@mindspring.com].  Total records = 2,157.

(Hodgenville map, Section 4-M-46 Carter coordinates) The Red Hill Cemetery is located near the site where Robert Hodgen's mill once stood and this old part of the cemetery seems to date back to the late 1830's. The old original section is located on a hill with bright red clay soil. Thus, the burial ground took its name. The hill fosters a good growth of pine trees and is the final resting-place of many of Hodgenville's early settlers. Together, the trees and the aging tombstones have seen a county born, while an old gristmill died. They have seen a small town grow and a way of life change for seven generations. The stories they could tell if they could only talk.

If an individual appeared to still be alive, they are listed as private or left blank. I included people with a birth date before 1910 with the death date left blank.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
