This is a death certificate for Sarah "Sallie" Pettit Jones.

I cannot make out the name of the cemetery, shown in the lower right-hand corner of the document.


I've thought J A R something Graveyard...

Any thoughts?

Dee, Photobucket won't let me enlarge it enough to get a closer look.... Based on what I can see, though, it looks like the word begins with a J (based on other words in the certificate) and ends in "ville Graveyard."

I thought I'd be smart and look at the lists of graves at Fleming Co., KY's, rootsweb site, but they didn't have a list. I next went to Find-a-Grave... but there are no cemeteries that begin with a J and also look close enough... Pleasureville, Elizaville, Ingram Hill.

You've probably already searched so I doubt I can help much. Maybe you could join the Rootsweb Fleming Co, KY, email list (if you haven't already).

I notice that Scot Stout (who is a geneablogger) hosts the US Genweb site for Fleming Co. Could you check with him? (Info here:

Also, at you can see a list of KY gen blogs ( and see search results for Fleming County KY on gen blogs (

You are a good and thorough researcher, Dee, and you've probably done all of these things but I mention them just in case you haven't.

Another possibility is that the cemetery isn't in Fleming Co. If she lived near a county line she could have been buried in a nearby cemetery in a different county. Do you have a good KY map?

Don't you love the sleuthing aspect of genealogy?!
