This is how the Hutton Cemetery looked on July 19, 2000

     The picture pretty much says it all. This family cemetery has just about disappeared underneath a blanket of Periwinkle and dense underbrush. This cemetery is a mass of unmarked graves with most of the graves sinking and collapsing. There are however a few marked graves in this cemetery, but very few. We photographed what we could find. A lot of the graves just have a rock placed at the head and at the foot to mark them, some are not marked at all except for a depression where the grave is located. 
 Lewis Johnson was the last caretaker, for which his notes tell the identities of some of the unmarked graves. He gives approxiamate locations of some of the unmarked graves and lets us know who some of the individuals are in this cemetery.
 To get to the cemetery, turn off of Road 229 in Jarvis, Knox Co., Kentucky, onto Elam Branch Road. Go approximately 1 mile. You will drive up an inclined driveway on the South side of the road. Make sure to stop and let the landowner know who you are and why you are there. The Cemetery will be located in a southeasterly direction in the woods behind the house.

In the southeast corner of the cemetery were 5 tombstones. All appear to be from a family by the name of Parker. Rumor has it that these are the children of Sarah Malinda CLOUSE and William Brock Parker. I have a list of the children of Sarah Malinda CLOUSE and William Brock Parker and these children do not appear to be theirs. One of the tombstones lists the parents of an infant with the initials of N.B. & S.E. Parker. The parents of the infant and the others could be Sarah E. HUTTON (D/O Elizabeth J. SLEMP & Leonard Hutton) and Nathan B. Parker a brother to William Brock Parker. This will have to be researched further.
