Rowntree Cemetery

Barren Co., KY


This is an old cemetery located off the New Salem road. Go out the New Salem road and across the bridge over the Cumberland Parkway. Take the next road to the right, and go to the end. Mrs. Murlene Walker has the stone at her home. The cemetery is located in a field near her home. She said there was only one marked stone, to her knowledge, but several had been marked with field stones, which are now gone. The remaining stone was one of the old vault type with a cap stone. The walls crumbled and the cap stone fell. Her son moved the cap stone to her house, in order to protect it. It is at the end of her front porch.
