These grounds were bought by the Christ Church in Lexington, Ky in 1832. With the cholera epidemic of 1833, the burial ground around the church, which is a few blocks away, filled up, so they started burying people here. As this one filled up, the Lexington Cemetery had opened so some of the people were dug up and moved there. There were 11 men buried here who fought in the Revolutionary War and there is a memorial here to those men. 6 of them were moved and 5 are still here. The most notable is Thomas Hart who was father n law to Henry Clay. The burial grounds were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 24, 1976. These 2 graves look like they are broken but they were made that way. There are kids buried under here and the broken off tops show that their lives were cut short.
