Unknown Cemetery, (Waller-Omer Rd) Union Co., KY
(with photos)

This cemetery is located on Waller - Omer Rd. Coming from the Grangertown area, turn onto Waller Omer Road, and right after you cross where the railroad tracks used to be, it is on your right. It is less than a mile down the road. It is hard to see, as it's overgrown somewhat. I'm told that this is a Colored Cemetery and that there are more graves here. I honestly do not know if that is true or not. I could only locate 5 stones with names on them, 2 more areas that were graves, and I saw nothing else. Perhaps in the winter more can be seen?
