Cemetery History

Adams-Kimball Cemetery was located on a small farm owned by an African-American family. The Adams Family was renowned for their stone masonry. Most of the stone walls along Hillsboro Pike were constructed by the Adamses, the artisanship passed down generation to generation.

The Adams family cemetery off Hillsboro Pike has three tombstones, one with an interesting distinction: It marks the grave of a Civil War soldier who served in the U.S. Colored Infantry. Harvey Kimball apparently married into the Adams family and came here to live after his service.

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.
