Cornelius Cemetery, Christian County, KY

I found a website the other day that contains information about a number of my direct ancestors. It’s a cemetery website for the Cornelius Cemetery near Sinking Fork in western Kentucky. My fourth great-grandparents – John and Martha “Patcey” Cornelius – are interred there.

What was also interesting are the names of some of the other relatives. On this page, I found  a Woodrow Wilson Cornelius and a Chester Arthur Cornelius – the latter apparently named after President Chester A. Arthur.

What was really interesting was a John Wilkes Cornelius. John was born in 1875 -- ten years after the Lincoln Assassination -- and passed away in 1876 after only six months of life.
