NIELD FAMILY CEMETERY

This cemetery has been known by several names during its history. Some of the names used have been:

  • French Cemetery
  • McGinnis Farm Cemetery
  • Nield Family Cemetery
  • Former owners of the property have been:

  • Bonta
  • Cocanougher
  • William Sevier
  • Hundley
  • McGinnis
  • The farm is still referred to as the Sevier Farm by some of the "old-timers" in the area, however is now known as the HUNDLEY FARM.

    LOCATION: The farm is located on Quirks Run Road, off Highway 68 southwest of Harrodsburg and south of Nevada, KY.
    The cemetery is located on the private property of Mr. and Mrs. Hundley and is about one mile across pastureland.

    CONDITION: The cemetery is located atop a knoll, surrounded by the remains of a rock fence with a wrought iron gate for entrance to the gravesites.
    Mr. Hundley has installed a barbwire fence outside the rock fence to protect it from grazing cattle.
    The rock fence is deteriorating and falling down in areas, the gravestones are falling down and, in some instances,
    buried, and the area is pretty well covered with trees and tree limbs which have fallen and are rotted.

    SPECIAL NOTE:
    Mrs. Margaret Hundley and her son surveyed this cemetery a few years ago and provide the names that were legible at that time and has kindley given her permission to place this list on the internet for use by other persons performing research into their family histories.
    It must be brought to the attention of any researchers using this list that it is only partial and a comparison with other surveys will disclose additional names of persons that were buried in the cemetery. These lists are avialable from the Historical Society in Harrordsburg.
