White Cemetery

Emogene Greer has visited the White Cemetery located east of Edmonton KY off highway 533, and transcribed some of the tombstones located there. Many of these stones appear to mark the graves of the family and descendents of John M. White who was born in 1850 to Stephen and Rhoda Bowles White.

White Cemetery

John M. White first married Martha F. Martin, daughter of Caffrey and Malinda Martin. Martha died sometime between 1881 and 1893, and John married Hibernia Alice (last name unknown).

John and Alice are buried here. I am not certain where Martha Martin White is buried. Also buried here are some of John's children by each wife. Some of the others listed below may also be related to this family.

Emogene took this picture on a recent visit to the cemetery.

Here are the stones she has transcribed. Please note that there are numerous other stones in this cemetery.
