Bush Cemetery

The Bush Family Cemetery is located off Ring Road in Elizabethtown, Hardin County, KY. From I-65, take Highway 62 east to Ring Road, to Alex Lane (marked as a dead end). The cemetery is at the end of Alex Lane.

This cemetery has some very old markers. The Bush family is remotely connected to Abraham Lincoln through Sarah BUSH Johnston (second w/o Thomas Lincoln and step-mother of young Abraham.)
