I was told the area back in this little snug cove was on a road to Campbellsville or some other place such as Wales at one time and there was an old school here in this valley. There is another graveyard several hundred yards to the east of this place where only fieldstones mark the graves. It is at the top of a tall hill. This could mean that graveyard was the slave graveyard if his family were slave owners or it may be a graveyard for children that died in the old school, among other possibilities.
