(Hodgenville map, Section 14-N-46 Carter coordinates) This old cemetery is about 2 miles north of Hodgenville on the Homer Nicholas farm. The cemetery is on the east side of the road and dates to 1825. William Brown first came to Kentucky in 1782 and stayed at Fort Harrod. After his brother James was killed at the massacre at Blue Licks, William returned to Virginia. William returned to Kentucky in 1790 and settled just north of Phillips Fort. Among his neighbors were Jacob and James Larue, Conrad Walters, Isom Enlow, Robert Hodgen, Conrad Kastor, Phillip Phillips and Joseph Kirkpatrick. The Filson Club has some of William Brown's papers.

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.
