#147 Martin Cemetery

Posted on

Lascassas Quadrangle 2/3 mile north of Jefferson Pike

East of Valley View Road 1/4 of a mile down a farm access road and in wooded area.

Gwen’s notes: 

This was a large cemetery and was likely the McAdoo/Martin cemetery.   People are buried there before the Civil War and there is a large row of graves which appears to be slaves. At one time the McAdoo’s owned 48 slaves. This is all going to be lost soon. There are hardly any markers left standing. Some of these pictures were made earlier.

Note: These stones appear to have shaving cream on them. Please do not do this.  When we first started doing genealogy, this was the preferred method of photographing stones and many of us did it, but now we know that it can destroy the stone.

Also DON’T write the photographers about this. They let me use the pictures, so be nice to them.
