Rhodes Cemetery

Barren Co., KY


Located on the former Ishmael Atkinson farm, on Smith Road # 1, off the Beckton Road. Now owned by Tom Holmes. Drive to the small house at the end of the road (the home of William Murrell). There is a lane turning off to the right just before getting to the house. Follow this to the cemetery. This was copied in 1992, and I’m not sure of the condition of the cemetery now. Both blacks and whites are buried here. It is said that after the death of his wife, Dr. Rhodes kept a black woman and had several children by her. Her name was Ann, and she is most likely buried here also.
Surnames include: Brown, Buford, Geron, Hansford, Hayden & Rhodes
