Maple Grove Cemetery, Nicholasville Kentucky

Maple Grove Cemetery was established on May 16, 1849 and operated as a private cemetery until the city of Nicholasville Kentucky accepted responsibility for its management in February 1993. It is impossible to determine a precise number of individuals laid to rest at Maple Grove due to the absence of many headstones and markers. The thousands of individuals who are known to be buried there include Civil War solders, victims of the Cholera epidemic, and a community hero-a black man who, in the mid 1800’s, toiled to bury white victims of the dreaded disease and who eventually succumbed to it himself. There are 12,513 known burials at the Maple Grove Cemetery up until 2008, the last time this database was added to, and these are presented here along with a history of the cemetery.

Edmonson County, Kentucky, Tax List, 1825

The Edmonson County, Kentucky, tax list of 1825 is arranged alphabetically by the name of the taxpayer. This simplifies finding a given name, although you lose family groupings.

The names in the fields for whom entered, for whom surveyed, for whom patented, were very difficult to read, but include names of the earliest settlers in this area, and many are not found elsewhere on this tax list, so we think it was worth the effort to include these fields. If you find errors, please let us know.
